Those first DNA tests where not circumspect, the latest work supports the divergence of the two species. You can read the paper by clicking on the name Craterellus fallax.

The reason I used Craterellus cornucopioides

was this from Mushroom Expert… “Craterellus cornucopioides (Craterellus fallax, Craterellus konradii) Three species, Craterellus cornucopioides, Craterellus fallax, and Craterellus konradii, have been separated on the basis of geographical distribution and the color of the spore-bearing surface. Dahlman et al. synonymize all of these species, finding no significant genetic variance. The name Craterellus cornucopioides takes precedence according to the rules governing botanical names."
