When: 2015-06-23
(32.8419° -94.7015° )
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Very similar to chanterelles found in observation 207840.

I checked spores in the microscope, the sizes averaged around 10 micron in length and looked to be very similar to those in observation 207840

Recognized by sight: C. cibarius doesn’t occur in Texas (or anywhere in the USA to my knowledge). Bright yellow colors look like C. flavus, but I don’t know if that’s in TX either.

Based on Texas Mushrooms:A Field Guide, and other old sources these would fall into C. cibarius.

I understand that these names are not current or pointing to a specific species.

I have spore prints and will be measuring spores in the days to come. Maybe that will help to a name to it.
