Observation 205616: Cantharellus texensis Buyck & V. Hofst.
When: 2015-06-02

Notes: Caps: largest 2.5 – 3 inches across. Most smaller.

Gills: Running down the stem, ridges not plates, not separable from stem or cap.

Stem:length 1 – 1.5 times width of cap.

Smell: very mild

Spore Print: pinkish cream

Spore Dimensions:
[20/1/1] L (-7.3) 7.5 – 8.3 -(8.9) μm x W (-3.7) 3.9 – 5.2 (-5.5) μm, (L = 8.0 μm, W = 4.4 μm), Q (-1.51) 1.60 – 1.99 (-2.04), Q = 1.84 Elongate

These spore dimensions differ from Cantharellus cinnabarinus being both longer and having a higher length to width ratio.

However, they are both shorter and have a lower length to width ratio than = reported for C. texensis.

As C. cinnabarinus and C. texensis are “look-a-likes”, probably requires DNA analysis to sort this out.

I am leaving this as C. texensis as it is closest to that.
