right alongside Cantharellula umbonata. For those of us who gather for the table, having a concept of the differences between these two types is good stuff. The two occur in similar habitat, are similarly sized, and exhibit similar macro-traits. If they happen to be growing together, knowing a few key differences is a big help. Collecting C. umbonata for a meal requires gathering a large number of these small fungi, and this type of collecting lends itself to inadvertently mixing.

I see this collection shows gills fairly widely spaced. The manuals which include an account of C. trulliformis list the spacing as “close.” I believe I have encountered this same type of gill-spacing discrepancy in my collections of C. dealbata var. sudorifica.
