    Hi everyone. I've lurked here for awhile learning about morels. I started hunting morels just a few years ago and am relatively new to the mushroom hunting hobby. Can anyone help me identify these two mushrooms I found today? I think one is a false chanterelle and the other is the real thing based on the gill structure. Thanks! [​IMG]

    Oh sorry. I found both of the mushrooms on the forest floor not attached to wood or trees. They were located in dense forest of mostly oak, maple and hickory. Portage county.

    They are working for me ant. I had to post them to photobucket. If you click on the x's in the post they should pop up on your screen. If I'm doing something wrong let me know and I'll fix it.

    Thanks.

    Thanks everyone. Lance, very helpful with the smooth chanterelle. Now I am thinking that they are all chanterelles. The second one is the smooth Chant and the first one is the regular Chant......the gills on the first one are very shallow. Both mushrooms have a solid stalk. Should I eat both?

    here is excellent video on gold chants also remember when you cut a chant in half the stem is always pure white http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=PbtmRUgH_2U#at=80

    jackolantern stem is orange on the inside https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omphalotus_olearius

    Lance, That's a great video, I've been fortunate enough to come upon a couple of patches like that this season. I think everyone that hunts chants is having a great year, They're everywhere this year!!

    I can't tell how you guys are doing it, but the way Ant says to, works for me ! That's the way I do it too. First enlarge the picture by clicking on it. Then to the right of the picture are 4 codes. Copy the code in the box to the right of HTML. Then return to the comment and paste it there. Hit submit, and the picture should post.
