A New, Commercially Valuable Chanterelle Species, Cantharellus californicus sp. nov., Associated with Live Oak in California, USA. The prominent golden chanterelle of California’s oak woodlands is characterized as a new species, Cantharellus californicus sp. nov., using molecular and morphological data. Our observations indicate that it is the largest Cantharellus species in the world, with individual sporocraps commonly weighing 1/2 kilogram (kg) (or 1 pound) or more when mature. Other… 
A new species of Russula, subgenus Compactae from California.
TLDR
The authors' analysis shows that there are multiple clades of what is called R. subnigricans, and that the California species clearly falls within one of those clades, and should be cautioned as potentially dangerous to those who consume it.
Cantharellus cyphelloides (Cantharellales), a new and unusual species from a Japanese evergreen broad-leaved forest
TLDR
A new species is described from a Japanese evergreen broad-leaved forest based on morphological and molecular data and molecular phylogenetic reconstruction, which places the new species in Cantharellus subgenus Cinnabarinus.
Cantharellus pseudoformosus, a new species associated with Cedrus deodara from India
TLDR
Cantharellus pseudoformosus is described as a species new to science with a possible association with Cedrus deodara, and ITS and LSU data demonstrated that the material from India is distinct from CanthareLLus formosus and other closely related species.
Molecular phylogeny and morphology reveal three new species of Cantharellus within 20 m of one another in western Wisconsin, USA
TLDR
Three new species, Cantharellus phasmatis, canthareLLus flavus and Canthrellus spectaculus, all previously considered CanthARllus cibarius, are described in this study, supported by morphological differences and nuclear DNA sequence data.
Cantharellus violaceovinosus, a new species from tropical Quercus forests in eastern Mexico
TLDR
Systematic multiyear sampling of basidiomes allowed the recording of the morphological variation exhibited by fresh fruit bodies in different growth stages, which supports the recognition of this Cantharellus species from others in the genus.
The golden chanterelles of Newfoundland and Labrador: a new species, a new record for North America, and a lost species rediscovered
TLDR
Three species of golden chanterelles were found in Newfoundland and Labrador and were compared with other Cantharellus species by macromorphology, microscopy, and multilocus phylogenetic studies, finding the first report of this species from North America.
Short title: Cantharellus systematics Molecular phylogeny and morphology reveal three new species of Cantharellus within 20 m of
TLDR
Three new species, Cantharellus phasmatis, canthareLLus flavus and Canthrellus spectaculus, all previously considered CanthARllus cibarius, are described in this study, supported by morphological differences and nuclear DNA sequence data.
Morphological and Phylogenetic Evidences Reveal Four New Species of Cantharellus Subgenus Cantharellus (Hydnaceae, Cantharellales) From China
Species of Cantharellus subgenus Cantharellus are interesting and important for their mycorrhizal properties, medicinal values, and edibility. In China, there are many undescribed species of the
Cantharellus chicagoensis sp. nov. is supported by molecular and morphological analysis as a new yellow chanterelle in midwestern United States
TLDR
This study investigates yellow chanterelles in the Midwest using phylogenetic analysis of three DNA regions: nuc rDNA internal transcribed spacer 2 (ITS2) and 28S sequences and translation elongation factor 1α gene (EF1α).

Analysis of nrDNA sequences and microsatellite allele frequencies reveals a cryptic chanterelle species Cantharellus cascadensis sp. nov. from the American Pacific Northwest.
TLDR
Morphological data indicate that the colour of the pileus and shape of the stipe can be used to separate fresh collections of the two yellow species now known to co-occur in Douglas fir-western hemlock forests in Oregon.

Phylogenetic relationships within the Cantharellaceae inferred from sequence analysis of the nuclear large subunit rDNA
TLDR
Sequence analyses demonstrated that Cantharellus and Craterellus should be treated as distinct genera, and a reassessment of the morphological characters used to separate Cantharrellus and craterellus is indicated.

TLDR
Burial by birds and squirrels, important in regeneration, insulates acorns from autumn heat, partially hides them from animals, and ensures rooting, and seedling survival were studied in three species of foothill woodland oaks.
