Notes on Taxonomy: [Edit]

Craterellus confluens Berk. & M.A. Curtis 1866 – described from Orizaba, Veracruz, Mexico.

This chanterelle is similar to C. lateritius in color and stature but it differs by having 2 or more individuals fused together at a common base. Collections fitting the description of this mushroom have been found in Arkansas. However, there is controversy (where is there not controversy when humans apply names to biota?) as to whether this is a distinct species or simply a different growth form of C. lateritius. DNA analysis should help resolve this controversy.
