When: 2014-08-14

Collection location: Umstead State Park, Raleigh, North Carolina, USA [Click for map]

Who: Geoff Balme (geoff balme)

No specimen available

Notes:
I never see anyone talking about chanterelles on decaying wood. I’ve been hoping these little ones are C. ignicolor but I have no confidence in that ID.

NOTE Please ignore the photo file names. I often toss quick guesses on those before doing any work up. Unfortunately they’re boldly published here. I wasn’t anticipating that!

If a little bit maddening!

Thanks again for your help!

Looks like the mycelium…

may have worked its way right up through the center of the decayed log. Sometimes if there’s been a period of very dry weather, a downed log may retain moisture better than the soil, and I think some types of mycelium may gravitate toward the moisture.

thank you!

NO.

I’ve got more of this Craterellus coming out of well decayed logs generally in nice rows like this, but even nearer the top of the logs. OH I see it’s a genus change. I keep getting ruined by that!

Thanks again!

from a mycorrhizal fungus may crawl up onto downed wood. I’ve seen this with C. tubaeformis.

Geoff, do you have a photo showing specifically one of the wood dwellers?
