    i was hunting lactarius mushrooms today and i found a chanterelle. i have hunted them in the past with relatives but i have never eaten one that I have found. i am 99.999% sure this is what we used to get. i have compared it to to reference books and the most popular pics from a web search. the look-a-likes are the jack o' lantern and another fungus that grows from stumps and a false chanterelle that has a smooth rounded edge. this was neither. it was solo on the forest floor with ridges and not gills. it is wavy on the edges and vase shaped. i know the jack o' lantern fungus. it is luminescent in the dark.

    i was wondering if anyone here has any pics of the common yellow chanterelle? please share if you do.

    I don't have pictures, but the ones I have picked did have a distinct apricot smell to them!
