Found some unique chants today Red Chants rarely grow half the size of the goldens these were pretty small but I had to pick them only the second time I’ve ever seen them Good luck shrooming

Curious if anyone can definitively identify these as chanterelles, or not chanterelles. And why or why not? Never hunted chanterelles so I don't know, even after looking at some videos and such. Could be jack-o-lanterns? Or something else? These were growing in my parents yard, but they live in a wooded area. They seem pretty dried out to me, and we haven't gotten near enough rain in West Lafayette lately, so I'm not sure these even fully developed properly compared to how they would if we had gotten more rain around here.

Jacks can grow from the ground as well but usually growing from the root system of the tree. Also jacks are more orange, where chants are egg yoke yellow and don't grow in big clusters like jacks. the gills on jacks are sharp and close together. where as the chants have dull ridges. We need rain bad in the northern part of the state, hardly anything growing.

Yes you are right if there on the ground they are growing from roots
