Craterellus tubaeformis in the west is a different species than the one in the east. Regarding the coloration, I have yet to see a young C. tubaeformis with this coloration. The dark coloring is a distinctive feature. I think you guys have several unnamed species involved.

These are very young, fresh Craterellus tubaeformis. As they age they darken. You would need some proof that they are anything different, proof more than color!
