Observation 207473: Cantharellus texensis Buyck & V. Hofst.
When: 2015-06-14

Notes: Growing in mixed woods in the Big Sandy Creek Unit of the Big Thicket NP.
Spore length on these were in the 8-9.5 micron range which is one of the distinguishing characteristics that differentiates it from C. cinnabarius whose spore length is from ~ 6.5-8.0 microns.
My digital camera does not do justice to redness of this type of species.
