Brief Description: [See More | Edit]

“…a new species occurring in Mediterranean Quercus forests, on calcareous soil, is described. C. ilicis is characterized by its bright orange yellow pileus in
wet conditions, whitish stipe and hymenophore, strong staining, as well as by the long basidiospores in comparison with other species. Due to the thick-walled pileipellis hyphae, it is accommodated in the Cantharellus sect. Cantharellus. Macroscopic and microscopic detailed descriptions are provided and the new species is compared to closely related species, such as C. ferruginascens and C. lilacinopruinatus. The variability of the pileus colour, the presence of coating and the staining, currently used as diagnostic characters, are discussed. A key is proposed for the species so far known in the Mediterranean Basin.”
