wrote about Cantharellus cibarius as collected by Fries in Europe, shortly after having grown C. cibarius in containers at Oregon State University, about 1995 I believe. This was his master’s thesis, and was widely published at the time. He noted that DNA evidence of Fries original collection was not found many places in the world, based on samples submitted to him. As I recall Sweden, Netherlands, one spot in England, and (Finland?) were the only DNA matches to C. cibarius.

In 1993 I reported to the North American Truffling Society that I had cultivated Cantharellus cibarius (then) at Paul Bishop’s Jones Creek Tree Farm. Paul had grew up on the farm, and told me he had never seen Cantharellus there before. The following year he had to remove several trees infected with Fomes annosum (Douglas-fir root rot). The site has failed to produce more Cantharellus since.

As a result, Oregon’s state fungus was named C. formosus. C. roseocanus was also mentioned. Other Cantharellus around the world have been added as well in the 20 years since.
