I am just questioning the application of “friesii” here…

Not disputing that it looks different to your eye than other chanterelle species you are familiar with.

The European orange chanterelle is called C. friesii, but I couldn’t find a very good macro description anywhere. It’s orange and on the small side, but is that really enough to make an ID determination across the ocean?

I found zero references to C. friesii in North American literature or online refs (other than the belief that the name was misapplied by Alexander Smith, on Kuo’s site), but lots of friesii references on European sites.

How did you determine friesii as a possible name for your Ontario chanterelle?
Is there a Canadian reference that has shown friesii to occur in your area?

It is certainly a member of the cibarius group, but may well not have a good name at this point, like many of our North American chanterelles.

Canadian mycologists please chime in!

in this area for 3 years i did not find any C.cibarius only C.cinabarinus.
The tri species, are very small, they are very orange the caps are powdery
Nothing like i know too be C.cibarius, or any other chanterelle that i have found up too now

When we say that something is not growing in N.America…How was this determined?

curious why you are calling this friesii?

That sp. appears to be restricted to Europe, the British Isles and Asia…and perhaps misapplied here in NA.
