chanterelle help

I'm seeing alot of these i'm hoping its a chanterelle.

Orange and growing in soil its real fruity smelling,about a 2 1/2" cap,stems white inside and it was picked today. The stem did not break clean off its connected to the gills somewhat but not as good as alot of pics i'm finding so i'm looking for help.Waiting on a spore print.

Re: chanterelle help

I can't open those links Dave. Says page not found. Is your photobucket setting set so everyone can view?

You can also upload the pics right hear on the board. If you can't resize them yourself, the forum will do it for you automatically.

But growing on ground, and smelling fruity sure sounds like Chants.
Try again to get us pics.

Re: chanterelle help

The color isn't right. Should be all orange. Also the hollow pithy looking stem, and actual gills instead of those folded looking gills, leads me to think it isn't a chanty.

Chanterelles have ridges that look like gills, but actually are not, and they are thicker than normal gills.
They also have solid stems. (usually with bug holes, when I get to them LOL)

But you are reading, looking and learning Dave. I can see the same excitment in you that griped us all when we first start expanding our mushroom hunting. That's good, but remember...Safety FIRST!

Never eat one you are not 100% sure as well as a 2nd or 3rd opinion.

It won't be long before you will be able to spot the good ones from the bad. Happy hunting & learning my friend.

Re: chanterelle help

Frank you'er right on target. I dont believe those are chants either. Gills run down the steam and are more like ridges. Color is not right either. Chants color is a darker orange. Those shown look have a cap and chants are more one piece. Always be 110% sure and do your home work before you eat.

Without seeing them first hand, I would guess those to be Lactarius thyinos. Looks like they have an orange latex. If they stain greenish in injured areas, they would be Lactarius delicious. L. delicious will have a clear latex though.

Re: chanterelle help

Lactarius thyinos looks like it ... i found it in a cedar swamp and I can't get it to stain and it has no milk at all not even clear i'll grab some more today and try those tests on a fresh one and spore print it before i wash it like i did this one..

It was almost on the frying pan i have to admit I want to eat one it smells so good i'm curious of its taste and i see many out there i'm surrounded by cedar swamps and the river here.

Thanks for the replies I'll post my findings.

Re: chanterelle help

Dave, we would like to keep you around here for a long, so... PLEASE, PLEASE never be in a rush to eat a mushroom that is new to you.
There is always tomorrow, next week, next year to find some more and taste it after you are sure of the mushroom ID. But there may be no tomorrow or next year, if you eat the wrong one.

Remember the saying on my main page of website.

You can eat any mushroom that grows... once!
But remember...There is "No Sure Cure" for mushroom poisoning! If you have a bad reaction, you will either Live, or Die. Either way you're gonna regret it!
