Nice to see that, a fairly rare phenomenon for chanterelles in my area. Mostly we have ridged and even cross-hatched ridge chanterelle forms. When I rarely come across a non-ridged chanterelle, I immediately suspect a variety.

Also glad you pulled the specimen. To my eye, it appears there are other attached primoria near the base of the stipe: a fairly common occurence in my area as well, as are caespitose clumps of Cantharellus, when there is sufficient water in June. This year may be a bumper-crop year, as we had some substantial rainfall in June.
