Kuo’s “Craterellus konradii x cornucopioides” ??

Kuo also has Craterellus konradii x cornucopioides (intermediate; Norway) on his Craterellus species list, but I don’t see a description. Maybe he means individuals of mixed yellow and black pigmentation such as shown in images 129230, 129231, 129232, and 129234 of this observation which seem to bring up the question of how these color variants are formed.

Kuo’s “Craterellus konradii x cornucopioides” seems to suggest that the yellow and dark forms are two different species and that “Craterellus konradii x cornucopioides” would apply to the mixed pigment individuals such as the images I’ve listed above.
