There was a mistake . . .

Until very recently mushroom field guides depicted the wrong species under the name Cantharellus persicinus. Buyck et al sorted this out in a paper referenced in MO #321817. In that paper, Buyck et al report that, “Cantharellus persicinus is quite often referred to in the literature and even illustrated on the internet (Kuo 2015). Unfortunately, ever since a misidentified LSU sequence was deposited on GenBank (Dunham et al. 2003), the name has been misapplied to a different taxon (see C. velutinus in Buyck et al. 2016b this issue) with quite smaller spores.”

Both papers are accessible on Buyck’s Researchgate page The second one is titled, “The dilemma of species recognition in the field when sequence data are not in phase with phenotypic variability”. Say what you will about Bart Buyck, Brevity is not his middle name.
