This picture is a bad one. That day it was literally 100f and humidity about as high. I didn’t even notice they were not regular “cf cibarius” until the following year. I wasnt aware of the existence of appalachiensis until then. When I read of it,. I said"that looks like those ones I found!" I went to hunt down the picture and this was the only one and the last picture ever taken by that camera. I sweat all over it so hard I ruined it, it was literally pouring off of me. Ashtrays, the flash washed out the color pretty bad. The hymenium was more yellowish and the cap. Over all the yellow seems washed out in this pic. Maybe I do have another pic, I’ll look.

The reddish tones are not typical of C, appalachiensis which is a common species locally.

C. appalachiensis…

You proposed Cantherellus sp. Walt? You doubt that species or you doubt this collection represents it? Dave W, i’m confident they were a chanterelle, I collected several pounds of these and and a golden chant that day and ate them all eventually
