Not C. spectaculus, C. phasmatis

Too big for Cantharellus spectaculus, and wrong color tones of the pileus and hymenium. Compare this to my post of Cantharellus spectaculus (Observation 135600)and you should be able to see the difference. This looks like a mature specimen of Cantharellus phasmatis … the healthy mature specimens get to be this size, have the same egg-yolk yellow/orange pileus, and pink hymenium (due to pink spores).
