I found several types today, which was a first.
Of course there were some nice black trumpets (Craterellus cornucopioides). I found a pound with some real nice ones like this:
Then I found these, what I think is Craterellus foetidus because of the ridges, clustered growth, and its very pungent fruity aroma. They don't look like much from the top.
The bottom revealed the differences
Are these rare? I have never found them before and I only found a few.
While crawling around on my hands and knees in the moss, I found these tiny little ones which I think might be Craterellus calyculus
The largest one was not even the size of a dime.
All in all a very cool day with a wide variety of black chants.
