was a bruise. Chants sometimes bruises amber/orange. Some cibarius I brought home the other day showed a few orange spots.

orange just starting

You can see the orange starting to break through on the young specimens in the top photo. I find that the color of C. lateritius varies with growing conditions. These were growing in hot dry conditions after several days of heavy rain. The color is light yellow with apricot undertones.

Ha! Fooled me.

Usually the lateritius I find is more orange than these.

Looks like the chanterelle

formerly (currently?) known as cibarius. I’ve noticed a grainy sheen on the caps of some that I find. Yellow color leans toward cibarius.

it’s a little abnormal

No Alan. It’s a game. I bet somebody will recognize this very common and delicious fungus.
