Observation 214124: Cantharellus roseocanus group
When: 2015-08-16
0 Sequences

these are small chanterelles that grow at high elevation only. They are similar to our western “roseocanus,” but grow in tight clusters and do not have a pink frosting to the cap.

Taste only OK, not great.


alpine chanties; note BRIGHT hymenium!

tightly clustered growth
