Collection location: Cascades along Highway 12, Lewis Co. and Yakima Co., Washington, USA [Click for map]
Canary yellow centrally on cap- White towards margin. Understructure with tight veins(white ridged in dry specimens)-NOT GILLED as with all Cantharellus spp. Dense white flesh interior when sliced.
More closely resembling a white chanterelle in size and stature than C.formosus or C.cibarius. However, the color is strikingly similar in parts to all species. I feel like this species should be called the “best of both worlds chanterelle.” Taste is more pungently apricot in my opinion- some have claimed it to be no different than any other Chanterelle.
Odor: Pungent apricot.
Fruiting beneath Douglas fir.
Temp: low 50’s.
