Chants and false gill questions...

For you experiences chantrelle hunters - do all chants have obvious false gills? I found the cinibars earlier and the difference between the false gills on them and true gills on other mushrooms are pretty obvious. I've been finding some mushrooms out in the woods, growing solitary and nowhere near dead wood (meaning very doubtfully jack-o-laterns), that have very similar form to chants but they also have true gills that run down the stem. Plus the cap edges don't appear to roll under much if at all. I've tried twice to get a spore print without luck. Keying it out keeps pointing me away from chants because of the gills - so back to the original questions. Do all chants have false gills? Thanks for your thoughts...

Went out for three hours today just milling around. Took a bunch of "hey, that's neat..." pictures including some for gill comparison. Once I get the film back I'll post them.
