Discussion:

This specimen is close to Cantharellus lateritius in the sense of A. H. Smith (1968) and Bigelow (1978). Comer (1966) and Petersen (1979) considered C. lateritius doubtful and believed C. odoratus to be the correct name. There is no evidence of folds or gills and thus this might be considered a Craterellus. Petersen (1979: Pl. 2). Dennis +
