C. neotubaeformis

This from Matchmaker: “Craterellus neotubaeformis nom. prov. is used for this species by Pilz(1) because it is not considered to be the same species as the European taxon; features include modest size, dark brown to dingy yellow-brown cap, yellowish to gray or purple-tinged gills, slender hollow yellow to yellow-orange stalk, and white spores.”

That sounds like a pretty good description of this obs., but the name will have to wait publication. The colors here do not seem out of line with Pacific Northwest material I’ve seen. C. ingicolor is an eNA taxon that is bright orange from the photos here at MO.

Craterellus neotubaeformis is a name created by the guys at Univ. Wash. for the stuff in the pacific northwest. I’m not sure if it was officially published yet? (source?), and I am also not sure if there was real evidence for it, in terms of what exactly is different, other than that a species in western US shouldn’t be the same species from Europe. At least that is what I think off the top of my head.

Any alternative?

These are strange colours for tubaeformis. Could ignicolor be a possibility – or neotubaeformis (whatever that is)?
