Cantharellus minor


Common Name: Small Chanterelle


Substrate: Ground

Location: Hardwoods

Spore Color: Yellowish-Orange

Gill Color: Pinkish to Orange


An OK edible, but they are so small that you are unlikely to find enough for a meal unless you hit a big patch. Often grows from mossy areas. As with all chanterelles, these have false gills and an orange-yellow color to the fruitbody.


Other chanterelles are similar, but much larger.
