Observation 180396: Cantharellus cascadensis Dunham, O’Dell & R. Molina

When: 2014-09-25

Collection location: Cascades along Highway 12, Washington, USA [Click for map]

Who: Drew Henderson (Hendre17)

No specimen available

Notes:
Canary yellow centrally on cap- White towards margin. Understructure with tight veins(white ridged in dry specimens)-NOT GILLED as with all Cantharellus spp. Dense white flesh interior when sliced.

More closely resembling a white chanterelle in size and stature than C.formosus or C.cibarius. However, the color is strikingly similar in parts to all species. I feel like this species should be called the “best of both worlds chanterelle.” Taste is more pungently apricot in my opinion- some have claimed it to be no different than any other Chanterelle.

Odor: Pungent apricot.

Fruiting beneath Douglas fir.

Elevation: 3000ft.

Temp: low 50’s.
