That’s good to know. I thought the gills looked sharp and terminated abruptly on the stem.

These were not fruiting from wood. Tey were growing from the ground in a mycorrhizal fashion.

Also, the inner flesh is white if you look in the second pic, Hygrophoropsis has solid orange flesh. Alan Rockefeller also ID’ed it as a chanterelle.

These are chanterelles. You can also tell by the gills.

Hygrophoropsis aurantica?
