''Cantharellus cibarius'', commonly known as the chanterelle, golden chanterelle or girolle, is a fungus. It is probably the best known species of the genus ''Cantharellus'', if not the entire family of Cantharellaceae. It is orange or yellow, meaty and funnel-shaped. On the lower surface, underneath the smooth cap, it has gill-like ridges that run almost all the way down its stipe, which tapers down seamlessly from the cap. It emits a fruity aroma, reminiscent of apricots and a mildly peppery taste and is considered an excellent edible mushroom.
