I have not run across that aspect of the macro description of appalachiensis in any of the manuals. I have yet to ID this species, and now I have a better idea.

Still, the very pale fertile surface for this obs seems a bit off for tubaeformis.

Cantharellus appalachiensis isn’t a tubular species (i.e. hole in the center on the cap/hollow stipe)

My initial field guess

was C. tubaeformis. But the fertile surface shows no yellow or gray or violet. Yellow on stipe was more prominent than as seen in the photos.

How is C. appalachiensis ruled out?
