there can be little doubt of its id, given its shape, color, habitat, and repeatedly forking gills. Perhaps a regional variant?

Range seems wrong

It is similar to Cantharellula umbonata; but this would extend its range considerably (NE US) because this one was found in NE Alabama! Also, the flesh did not bruise/stain at all, as you can see from the picture of the gills.
