Brief Description: [See More | Edit]

This chanterelle described from the midwestern United States was formerly considered Cantharellus cibarius but morphology and molecular data show it is a distinct species. It is known by its egg-yellow to bright yellow pileus, yellow hymenium, yellow stalk, and bright yellow spore print. Molecular data show that it is sister species to Cantharellus phasmatis, another recently described chanterelle that occurs in the midwest.
