As far as I know, C. lateritius is only found under oak. There is no hemlock at Strouds Run, only hardwoods and pine plantations. The light colored mushrooms in the last photo do appear to be different. I remember them being larger and more fragrant than is typical of C. lateritius. Maybe they are something different.

Fortunately, we have the location down to plus or minus five meters, so they should be easy enough to locate next summer. :)

Strouds Run means either hemlock or hardwoods. I was thinking you found these in WV at Cranberry Glades Wilderness.

For some reason C. cibarius in Ohio is almost always under hemlock or in WV under hemlock or spruce. C. lateritius usually occurs under oaks. I am aware that mushrooms don’t recognize state lines and that C. cibarius does occur under beech etc. If you got these as I suspect under spruce then I would concur with C.cibarius. The light colored one does not look like anything I have seen in E. N. America.

Smooth chanterelles frequently develop wrinkles as they age. Note that none of the mushrooms in this observation have the blade-like ridges of a true chanterelle.

That’s the effect I was going for :)

Chanterelles are such curvy sexy mushrooms.

love that first image, Dan!

The lighting and positioning of that lovely chanterelle reminds me of some of those famous paintings of voluptuous, reclining nudes. Nice blend of art and science. And you can eat your work when you’re done!
