Greetings from Michigan! Cool chanterelles! If you are willing to make a voucher collection and send it to me I’d love to add it to my DNA analysis this summer. If you want to send a collection please shoot me a message and I’ll supply further information. Best regards!

and from reading the Mycologia paper by Bart Buyck et al on Cantharellus texenis, it is very difficult to discern any differences between C. cinnabarius and C. texensis in the field.
The main differences are seen using microscopic characteristics and DNA sequencing.
The Cantharellus texensis reportedly has shorter spores but not thinner. There are also some differences in the hyphae structure on the pileus surface.
Curiously, the Cantharellus texensis specimens examined by the authors were only found in SE Texas. C. cinnabarius is claimed to have a much wider range including SE Texas.

a post and subsequent discussion about a C. cinnabarinus look-alike that is found in southern NA. These certainly look like what I’d call Cantharellus cinnabarinus here in NE NA.
