Cantharellus in southwestern China: a new species and a new record
Abstract:A new Cantharellus species from southwestern China is described, based on morphology and DNA sequencing (LSU rDNA). The new species, C. vaginatus, can be distinguished from other chanterelles by the combination of a dark-colored flocculososquamulose pileus, a rugulose hymenophore, and thick-walled hyphae in the pileipellis. Cantharellus appalachiensis, a species originally described from southeastern North America, is newly reported from China.
