When: 2013-07-07

Notes: really dark caps on these chants, never seen that before and i’ve seen thousand and thousands of chants in all manner of growth and decay. looked kind of rosy-ish toward the margin of the cap although that doesn’t come through in the pics.

Yeah, it looks like what Jay collected.

The really pale hymenium and the reported rosy tints are particularly interesting…

But the fact that that species is like, a central western European Alps species (original sense) makes me think that applying the name here would be quite a reach.

Great find, whatever they end up being. Your move, Mr. Foltz.

those look very similar, I think cantharellus amethysteus is a pretty good match macroscopically

(Jay’s words, from Henderson State University website)

So my specimens will be a day or two later as these dry but hopefully they will be worth the wait! I can’t wait to see what you find out about these and the white ones.
