maybe Heidi saved one, and we can have another go?
they are certainly unusual!

were the hymeniums smooth?

that’s under the cap where the gills would be.

Dr. Ghosty found something similar in Georgia that he suspected was a white version of lateritius aka the smooth chanterelle.

Your depicted hymeniums also look smooth to me. Do you get lateritius in PA?

What did Matt discover with your white specimens, Dr.?

A white phase of a known local chanterelle would certainly not deserve a new specific, and not a European name, either! It’s certainly not a cibarius anything!

dry one or two for science.

Not 100% sure

Well.. I’m not 100% positive with subalbitus. It’s the closest I could get for an ID.. I’m fairly stumped, as I as well thought it to only be found in the West?? Any other suggestions??

subalbidus in PA??!

first I’ve heard of it. I thought that it was a western species.
