If you want to tell me this species is dubiously separated from Cantharellus lateritius, I won’t argue with you–much. Virtually the only feature distinguishing the two species is the fact that in Cantharellus confluens, as the name suggests, the mushrooms are often confluent; stems give rise to more than one cap-like structure. In Cantharellus lateritius this does not usually happen. Both species have a smooth to wrinkled undersurface, and microscopic features are virtually identical. To my knowledge no DNA study has been published in which Cantharellus confluens is considered.
