Observation 139516: Cantharellus Adans. ex Fr.
When: 2013-07-10
(32.2175° -82.4136° )
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I found these growing in clusters on the steep side of a creek. There had been a lot of rain the past few weeks so the ground was pretty damp. Most of the clusters of these beauties grew in the spots covered with peat moss and surrounded by coniferous tree roots. The weather in this area this time of year is always very hot and extremely humid. The mushrooms are moist to the touch and almost has a slightly silicone feeling, if silicone were to be more flimzy. They smell pleasantly earthy, hearty and clean. The gills are more like defined ridges rather than being gil. The ole mushroom is orange in color. Roughly the color of a dreamsickle. The cap is ruffles around the edges and the gills are attached to the stalk. They overall resemble a flower. Kind of like an orange orchid, in a way. Very pretty mushroom indeed.
