Re: Chanterelle?

Interesting! My best educated guess is the small red mushroom with yellowish gills is a waxy cap of some sort: http://www.mushroomexpert.com/hygrophoraceae.html The other red one looks like a Russula of some sort: http://www.mushroomexpert.com/russula.html

Great job getting spore prints, that will help a lot in identification. The middle picture, and it is a while guess without being able to see more of it, is a Bolete of some sort. I found a very small one yesterday also. Most boletes don't have gills but pores or spongey-looking underside. Lastly, the white one, where did you collect it - off a tree, off the ground, etc. I could be a number of things including a "cauliflower": http://www.mushroomexpert.com/sparassis_spathulata.html It is hard for me to say from the picture so don't take my word on that. Finally, the coral growing from the wood could be: http://www.mushroomexpert.com/artomyces_pyxidatus.html They seem to be really growing right now.

Good luck and keep it up!
