Near Douglas fir trees. Could this be a young version of Turbinellus floccusus? (Found a few of those in the general vicinity). How do you distinguish?

these are edible golden chanterelles

which, as you noticed, grow with fir.

They differ from Gomphus floccosus aka Turbinellus floccosus aka the scaly chanterelle in having a smooth vs scaly cap. They differ from our CA golden chanterelle in both size and shape (slender vs robust), cap color and host tree: oak vs fir.

Bon apetit!
