Brief Description:

This chanterelle described from the midwestern United States was formerly considered Cantharellus cibarius but morphology and molecular data show it is a distinct species. It is known by its egg-yellow pileus, white hymenium becoming pink with maturity, white stalk yellowing with age, flesh that bruises rusty brown, and a pink spore print. Molecular data show that it is sister species to Cantharellus flavus, another recently described chanterelle that occurs in the midwest.
