Recognized by sight: I’ll go with you all this — thought tubie because of the hollow in the cap, but this one has that too & the color is right.

If C. tubaeformis

then had to be growing on wood (often buried). No mention of that in the description. Strongly doubt C. tubaeformis, which is known locally as “Yellow-foot chanterelle” because of a distinctive yellow base of stipe, which I don’t see here. The stipe is too light-colored for it to be C. tubaeformis.

like a old C. ignicolor

that some american forms of tubaeformis have yellow to salmon-coloured spores, how about this? The hymenium looks somewhat different too.. Is it really the same species?
