I can’t say

because I wasn’t there, but to me these just don’t look parasitized or particularly rotted,
just because they were ‘gone the next day’ doesn’t mean they rotted in the ‘putrescent’ sense – Chanterelle buttons can abort and shrivel or otherwise become inconspicuous.

But this is really a hand-waving/smoke and mirrors type of evidence. We really just need a look under the cap…

defies the many-week persistence common to Cantharellus fruit bodies

Probably attacked by another fungus. Or hit by high temps and lack of substrate. Been pretty warm in LA? I heard in the 90s in the last 2 weeks?

The tallest is about a 1/2 " to 3/4" or so

These were practically gone by the next day.

where an indication of size could assist identification.
