is the name for Madagascar’s grey-blue, blackening chanterelle, which is associated with Eucalyptus robusta. The species was described after our field work, so C. congolensis was the best name we had at the time. One of the authors, Emile Randrianjohanny (user:ramily), a mycologist from Madagascar and our companion throughout our field work there, alerted me to the new name on facebook.

I am curious to know what this other chanterelle with a “mouse gray hymenophore,” C. avellanus, looks like. Apparently, so is everyone else who works with Malagasy chanterelles. See discussion in: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s13225-014-0314-5

All eucalypts in Madagascar are non-native. C. congolensis is also known from mainland Africa, hence the name. I’m not sure of the tree associations outside of Madagascar off the top of my head.

whoa now!
