These are small (caps about 1.7 to 2.7cm across) and look similar to the smallish eastern Cantharellus cibarius. In general they are even smaller and have thinner, longer stems and deeper ridges/gills.

is indeed correct. This specimen has the very typical color (the stipe is usually slender as here, but may be short as well and the hymenophore can be veined or not in between the gills).
C.appalachiensis is approx. the same hight, but with wider caps, not yellowish, usually darker brown and more robust in appearance (particularly the stipe).
Under the microscope both are identical and genetically they are also highly similar and sister species.
minor is the same color as our eastern cibarius_, bright orange-yellow.

I think that the Gulf States club website has something on cantharellus, check what they have listed. I’ve been told that C. tabernensis is similar to C. appalachiensis but smaller and doesn’t have the black scales on the center of the cap.
