Dr. Thiers found this form in California and included it, with a photo, in the Agaricales of CA. He notes that the spores are larger than C. cornucopioides.

C. fallax vs. C. cornucopioides

According to MushroomExpert.com:

“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.”

I’ll add this note to each of the species pages.
