Specimen available

Entirely yellow-colored chanterelles found in stand of mostly white pine (Pinus strobus) in wilderness area of NW Wisconsin. Population of atypical brown/tan chanterelles nearby, see MO Observation #215200.

Typical looking C ignicolor also found abundantly in same forest (but not in close proximity). I do see all-yellow colored chanterelle like that this. the Wisconsin (typically with conifers). It is not C phasmatis or C roseocanus. Conditions were very favorable for mushrooms (moderate temps, abundant moisture and humidity). The spot is heavily shaded from fairly mature trees.

Hey Britt, Cantharellus flavus is all yellow like this. Any chance you got a spore print? The spores of C. flavus are also bright yellow. That said, I’ve only found it associated with hardwoods myself.
