Observation 76133: Craterellus tubaeformis (Bull.) Quél.

When: 2011-09-09

Collection location: Ricketts Glen State Park, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

No specimen available

Growing in wet area under hemlock.

Now that “tubaeiformis” and “infundibuliforims” have been lumped, one need not fret over pseudogill/cap colors. The ones seen in this obs came from two patches in close proximity (maybe half an acre). Pseudogill colors range from whitish to pale yellow (younger patch) to grayish violaceus (older patch), with a few examples noted where the color was something in between the lighter and darker colors (in the older patch).

Is this species now officially placed into “Craterellus?”
