Chantrelle question

Chantrelle question
August 16, 2011 11:07AM
I have found, I think, Chantrelles. They fit all the descriptions and pictures, except that they are not so much yellow/gold as Orange. Really really orange underneath. I can't pull "gills" and the false gills run most of the way down the stalk. Is there anything else that they could be? I'm pretty certain they are not Jack O'Lanterns, and although they could be false chantrelles, they don't have the gills that I think they should have.

They do smell of apricots, but I also read that False Chantrelles can smell fruity too, so I'm not ready to take the plunge and commit to them. They are growing in clumps, in patches (large patches) in open-ish clearings in coniferous forest at about 9000'.

Not claiming to be an expert but they look good to me!

We normally find them in open rocky/gravel areas, sometimes right on the foot paths where the water flows

They are indeed Chantrelles. Feel free to send them to me if you do not want them!! I have a few in the fridge now.
