Wasn’t sure what name to put on these…

I pretty much know what name to put on these for out here, but I’m confused about what is in use in Europe. Shouldn’t these be Craterellus, not Cantharellus in any case? Have people (or someone) decided if the European stuff is or isn’t the same species as what is here in the US? I guess there is some suggestion to try and make the western stuff Craterellus neotubaeformis, and the eastern stuff just Craterellus tubaeformis…
