Does 2010-8-18 mean you are confident you will find it next Wednesday? Great photos BTW!

Hi Irene,
Its interesting that the NZ species are so diffrent ours are fire engine red with yellow gills and do not fade with age.

Looks like a possible cantharellus to me.
Orange red cap when fresh, but fading to yellow (hence the name), and gills becoming more yellow with age, that’s how I’d describe it.

Its odd my understanding of H. cantharellus is a bright red fungus with yellow decurent gills and not this yellow/orange fungus as shown.
