No date information in any of my guides

There is no information for correct seasonal conditions in any of my guides, online or printed. The closest I’ve found to this fungus is out-of-range where this was taken anyway. The pictures I’ve looked at of the Spathulariopsis velutipes have different colors, but I’m inclined to say that it is definitely not the chanterelle.

The Date shows 1/23/10 I don’t think that conditions are favorable for that species in January.

Is this right?

Do you have notes on how you got to this name? I haven’t seen any Cantharellus lateritius, not enough experience myself on the proper regions. But looking at the other photos on this site of that species, this doesn’t look right. These are too small, wrong colors, different shapes and on wood.

This looks more like one of the stalked ascos, like Spathularia, but not that one…
