Location: Colorado
Smell: Very Mushroomy
Edibility: Poisonous
Color: Orange to Brown

Grows on the ground, in the woods. Usually in small clusters. Rare find.

Closely Related to the Scaly Vase Chantrelle (Gomphus Floccosus). Some eat this mushroom, though its not recommended. Can cause vomiting and diarrhea. It could also be Gomphus Bonarii. The two species are very similar. This mushroom reminds me of a hybrid cross between a Hawks wing and a Chanterelle.
