Recognized by sight: Based on the photo it seems more likely to be a Clitocybe than a Cantharellus, but I’m not at all confident of this id. It certainly could be a Cantharellus.

I’d have to see more info…

I threw in the Clitocybe id since that seems more likely to me than Cantharellus, but I’m at all confident in that name. It’s great that there’s a dried specimen. I take it you’re no longer in Bolivia. Any chance someone at the herbarium could take a few more photos or even better could do a bit of microscope work? It should be fairly straight forward to at least get the family right with a bit of scope work. Is there someone at the herbarium that knows fungi at all? BTW, thanks for all the great photos from South America.

this is the only measly picture I’ve got, but I’d willingly retract my species assertion in place of a better one.

Closeup of the underside?

I’d love to see a closeup of the underside. From this image it doesn’t look particularly ‘Cantharelloid’. It looks more like what you might see in a Clitocybe.
