I just read a little bit about these two species, and it looks like this is a classic lumping and splitting thing. I am sure that with more phylogenetic studies we will see more of this in the future.

C. cornucopiodes is a European name for a white spored black trumpet that has been applied to a western NA species.

Here in Pennsylvania I have collected a white-spored trumpet under conifers. But by far the most common trumpet I encounter is the orange/yellow-spored C. fallax.
