False Chanterelle,


close up of under the cap, I posted this pic before of the mystery chanterelle. okay perhaps this is a false chanterelle afterall! The forky forked gills. Hygrophoropsis aurantiaca growing in a tiny patch, tiny mushrooms, fluorescent orange, in Eco Village of Floyd Bennett Field.


in pine needles, mostly white pine


these were so small and delicate, dries up faded but in the wild they were flourescent orange
