I had a look at the dried material from this observation and after a lot of searching I came across a total of 8 mature spores. I don’t know why there where so few. The size range generally agreed with Cantharellus concinnus but the statistical significance of 8 spore measurements doesn’t give me much confidence in that (or any) name .
