Took a look at the spore prints you made on foil. The prints are pale yellow. Thanks for the specimen and prints.

I haven’t made a fresh collection since! What is summer without Chantrelles…
I found this species late into the fall last year. If I can, I will make a print on a slide and scrutinize the bejesus out of it.

Spore print needs to be done on pure white paper or on glass slide to determine the true color. Most likely the spores are very pale yellow.
