for this translation—

T he closest species with which could be confused, is Cantharellus ianthinoxanthus (Maire) Kühner, the which has been considered synonymous for a long period of time. The main differences consist that C. melanoxeros presents carpophores larger folds more marked in the hymenium, which is more dark-colored ro (gray-violet) and, above all, because the rubbing or blacken meat aging, mainly on the edge, such and as seen in the photograph. Microscopically also be differentiated easily because C. ianthinoxanthus presents spore longer, up to 12 microns.
