Obviously not the same species, but perhaps allied.

No I’m not sure it is Cantharellus, the only reason I proposed that name was because of what is said at the link that Irene provided, this is definitely the same mushroom that is shown there.

I didn’t taste this and doubt it would be any good, if it is tasty it would be hard to get enough for a good meal, the largest specimen in my image is only about 15mm in diameter.

or possibly the same, but younger?http://virtualmycota.landcareresearch.co.nz/...
is listed as Cantharellus sp., but with a questionmark: “a Camarophyllus?” (Horak’s comment).

What an unusual mushroom. Are you sure they are Cantharellus?
