the description here on MO should be amended to say mature hymenium is orange, white when young.

I’ve only been calling a specimen C. enelensis when I have sequenced it.

As suggested by Voitk, et al, C. enelensis may be common in northeastern North America. Until I think I can id it by sight, I’m calling other similar-looking specimens “Cantharellus cibarius group”.

I thought that an ORANGE hymenium was a distinguishing characteristic for enelensis (see description here on MO). But the DNA matches in this obsie.

Now what??!
