  1. Thanks for the nice pictures! Just searched the web and came ro the conclusion that it‘s hard to say. Found this match: Hygrocybe chlorophan and Hygrocybe flavescens Posted 2 months ago
    1. Thanks for the suggestions! I did initially consider Hygrocybe flavescens, but that species has adnexed gills that are narrowly attached to the stipe. The mushrooms in my photos have decurrent gills. Also, Hygrocybe flavescens has gills that are more closely spaced and less waxy in appearance.

      Hygrocybe chlorophana is traditionally considered to be European, while Hygrocybe chlorophana is N. American. However, there is debate about this. They might be part of the same complex or even the same species. H. chlorophana may or may not technically occur in North America. I'm not sure what the current consensus is.

      So, I'm not sure what these are. My top choices so far are Cantharellus minor or Gloioxanthomyces nitidus, but they could be neither! ;P

  2. Ohh I see, they really small. Nothing for the kitchen, I love chanterelles. I found one picture absolutely machting but without description. I‘ll give it another go… Posted 2 months ago
    1. I have never eaten one, but do love finding chanterelles. My favorite is the red chanterelle:
      Red Chanterelle - Cantharellus cinnabarinus Flat caps with shallow, central depressions. The caps were bald, dry, had wavy margins, and were bright reddish/pinkish orange. The undersurface had decurrent false gills.<br />
<br />
 Habitat: Growing throughout a mixed forest. <br />

      1. The chanterelles taste wonderful. I tagged you in FB on some dishes… Posted 2 months ago
        1. Oh, nice! I'll check it out and maybe it will entice me enough to get the courage to eat a mushroom, lol. Posted 2 months ago
          1. Ok. That risotto looks incredible! I need to make it. I love anything with pumpkin and squash, in general. And, I think it's great that you make so many plant-based foods. Posted 2 months ago
            1. Thank you so much! Posted 2 months ago
