Recognized by sight: fruiting date, location, bright yellow hymenium. I imagine the gray color is due to the age and relatively drier fruiting conditions. Even later-season, moister frb show a bloom like this when young

Gray chanterelle

Jeff – The gray chanterelles were collected on Murray Rd on both sides of the road. One side was completely logged and the other side ONE sitka spruce was left as a seed tree. That’s the one tree they were collected under in around 1984.

Ive been followed a few times

by some rangers out there, luckily I only take pictures out there not taking anything with me so they haven’t hassled me too much about it (yet). Thanks for the warning though!

Careful about collecting there!

Got a $270 fine for picking one Boletus edulis at Ma-le’l Dunes a while back – be careful about even looking like you’re collecting there.

those are much grayer than I expected! I’ll have to keep an eye out whenever I’m in McKinleyville!

only one picture exists of Darvin’s find.
One fruitbody is overall pallid yellowish, but the other, younger fruitbodies in the photo are gray-capped with an obviously white hymenium.

Actual white gills as opposed to white ridges?! I saw nearly fully white chanterelles last season, but the ridges still had a yellowish tinge to them, figured it was from dry weather (would the dry weather affect the hymenium or only the top of the cap?)

This looks almost like Darv’s “gray chanterelle” that he ate, but those had white gills. Wish someone would find those again…
