Found on the Indian Trail at the Mountain Lake Conservancy Lodge/Hotel. Was growing on leaf litter/soil in mixed woods. Small pine needles stuck to stipe and cap. These were very small, about 6 cm tall with a cap about 3 cm (estimated). They almost appear to be dull orange chanterelles. The cap is pale ochre in color; indented in the center and also on one side; slightly inrolled. The cap is smooth. Small toothed teeth instead of pores/gills are also ochre. Taller than it is wide. Spore print likely white as there was no staining on the stipe. Description author did not taste, but others identified the specimen as bitter.
