Observation 210701: Cantharellus Adans. ex Fr.
When: 2015-07-19
No herbarium specimen

Notes: These were found in a heavily wooded area, older growth coniferous trees, growing in mossy ground. Soil in the area is fairly sandy. According to my partner these mushrooms have a faintly fruity smell (although I couldn’t notice it). The “gills” are fairly firm and fleshy, and in cross section look like the folded ridges reported to be characteristic of true chanterelles.

I can provide better pictures if necessary and more information if required.

I did a spore print over night. It came out a creamy yellow colour.
