Sorry, the information I have is limited to what I can see in a group of partially dehydrated mushrooms. The colors might well have changed after hours or days on a plate. If the fresh mushrooms were pinker and the cap tomentum was already concentrically wrinkled or rippling, Buyck’s new Cantharellus velutinus seems a likely candidate. If the tomentum only began to wrinkle with dehydration, species formerly lumped as C. cibarius would be more likely. A couple of those, C. phasmatis and C. deceptivus are supposed to pinken as they age, at least on the hymenial surface.
Do you want to offer us a better name?
Buyck, et al. 2016. “Wisconsin chanterelles revisited and first indications for very wide distributions of Cantharellus species in the United States East of the Rocky Mountains” Cryptogamie, Mycologie, 37 (3): 345-366 reassesses C. persicinus and finds that the “real” C. persicinus is a very different creature than that shown in several field guides. Other of his papers in that same issue might suggest other taxonomic possibilities for these specimens.
