why I posted the harrisonii proposal, another viable alternative. This species has fruit bodies that are brilliant red when in prime condition, and conceivably, the ones in this observation may have been more vividly colored when younger.

may be indicated on the photos, but is not conspicuous on the dried specimens. I like the alternative names to C. marylandensis because this is not a red as some I have seen, but this was old and might be faded.
