Apparently, C. laeticolor is smaller and not clustered.

Don’t know about the situation in America – is there even any recent research done?

In Europe and Western Asia there are about 20 species, worldwide about 60. In Europe we have the following more common yellow ones: C.laeticolor,C.helvola, C. fusiformis and C.luteoalba and one C.corniculata which differs in its outer shape.
But I don’t know about the other very rare species coz I am not a special fan of this difficult group of fungi mostly fruiting very late in the season.

What are the closest look alikes?

How(gh) can you call these C.fusiformis or C.laeticolor

without an at least small look into the scope at the spore form? There are so many alikes in this group that it is more than confusing and it is not possible to disentangle them in the field …
