Collection location: Shope Creek, North Carolina, USA [Click for map]
Habitat: gregarious in moss, in mixed woods.
Cap: diameters to 38 mm, smooth and dry, inrolled at first, vase-shaped and somewhat lobed at maturity. Bright yellow to pinkish yellow.
Hymenium: false gills decurrent, thick, branching and anastomosing but not cross-veined. Pinkish.
Outer tube: overall length to 33 mm, flared at apex, then equal, about 5 mm in diameter. Solid. Initially mostly yellow but pinkening with maturity. Flesh concolorous.
Odor: none detected.
Taste: not distinctive.
Spore print: very pale cream, with a hint of pink cast.
Note: these mushrooms probably represent the same mycelium as reported from this location by Buyck, et al. They are not the large peach-colored species often described in field guides. Buyck’s molecular work found that species to be a pink form of Cantharellus velutinus.
