I was so happy to finally come across these WITH my camera :) Every summer I’ve encountered them here I have been prepared with my knife and bags but no camera… I think the fact that I was leading a group of 1st time mushroomers to pick cantharellus helped the luck of this find. I also was really intrigued with the fact that these didn’t have the typical stick and twig fest running throughout their fruitbodies. Most Hydnellum seem to always grow around and into whatever plant life and debris is nearby. These were pristine!
Happy hunting to you both ;)
they look really ‘happy’ and well developed.
