lots of trees

I have found C Cibarius under all kinds of trees. Hardwoods and Hemlock. Both places fruiting in vast numbers in West Virginia.

C. lateritius

is our most common chantie here in northern PA; mainly, if not exclusively, oak woods. My friend in N. Vermont once came across a large fruiting of lateritius in a beech/hemlock forest. In general, the smooth chanties seem to be uncommon that far north.

This past August we found “cibarius” along the border of a Lodgepole Pine forest in Montana.

In Ohio the cibarius types do fruit early and almost exclusively under hemlock.
In WV spruce woods seem best.
In Mich. I find them under beech and mixed hardwoods.
I am mystified by chanterelles and their state boundary preferences.
Our common species is C. lateritius which is associated with oaks here.

type mushrooms that I find here in PA and NY are early fruiters… late June through mid July and are found mainly in hardwood forests. In Vermont I find them in late August, usually (if not always) in spruce stands.

This looks like Canthaellus tenuithrix Buyck nom. prov. It is our common early season, stocky, yellow-orange “Cantharellus cibarius”. Another one in this group that he is describing is C. altipes which is a paler smaller species with a long stipe.
I was looking through the observations on this site last night but was waiting for him to publish before I made changes to any of them. He hasn’t done much collecting in the northeast, I showed him a few pictures of mine that weren’t either of these so there a lot of work to be done…
