I just rechecked some of my reference materials and found the following quote from Kuo’s “Mushrooms of the Midwest” (2014): “Craterellus fallax is sometimes treated as Craterellus cornucopioides, but a recent DNA study (Mathaney et al. 2010) supports the idea that the latter species is European.” Sometimes it’s hard to break old habits where names are concerned. Thanks for keeping me on my toes=) Perhaps someone at MO will find the time to go back and update the older observations so we can all be on the same page.
