h.aurantiaca ?

I'm guessing the genus only label is a response to Kibby's comments in Field Mycology, but this looks like classic h.aurantiaca does it not?

It's certainly not one of the paler nor dark capped, nor dark stemmed variants, and if in doubt the aggregate meaning of sensu lato (i.e. h.aurantiaca s.l. and implied if the s.l. is left off) covers all bases and allows the less well-read to stick to 'false chantrelle'.
