This large pithy G. oregonense was monitored here at Watershed park on a dead Western Hemlock stump from 8/20/11 to 9/17/11. Images of middle growth were taken on 8/27/11. After collecting today we thinly sliced and dehydrated this specimen for later use as medicinal tea.

Temp has been from mid 70’s to 90’s in the last few weeks. Very low precipitation recorded during this specimens growth period.

Update on 10/21/21:
Returned to the patch to check on the remaining fruiting bodies that I left to mature(on initial observation date 10/12/21) and two were at full maturity/soggy. Maroon/brownish mahogany caps with majority of the white bloom warn off from heavy rains over the last 9 days. Harvested a single nearly mature fruiting body and dehydrated for culinary use(and a portion to add to herbarium bag/voucher(images/updates from today included in this observation of mature fruits-note the stretched squirrel nibbles from original two specimens from 10/12-to today).

Found on Well rotted conifer- from bark it looks to be either Ponderosa pine or larch. Young specimens,

This looks to have started spreading and then was halted by lack of rainfall. I will have to monitor this substrate throughout this season to see when the cap folds form.

Younger fruiting on a well rotted conifer(bark less). By the end of each season these fruiting bodies will lengthen with whiter tips and appear almost like a Hericium with orange tinges from a distant view.

Although technically a tubed fungus, I am placing this observation in the “toothed fungi” species list based on macroscopic appearance to compare to similar looking species in the Hericium.

Elevation: 2400ft.

White hymenium and stem with a canary yellow cap. I often refer to cascade chanties as the "white and yellow" or two tone Chanterelle. Fruiting in mid elevation with roots of Douglas fir in conifer dominant canopies between 2000-3000ft. in the cascade mountains but also occurring at lower elevations predominantly in October and November. Hymenium "veins" are usually arranged much tighter and deeper than other members of the PNW Chanterelle's such as C. formosus and C. subalbidus, another key indicator for the species. Just as delectable and similar in stature to the white and Pacific golden Chanterelles.

Very large, robust species- fruiting in rather dry conditions in mixed coniferous forest. Somewhat buried in the duff. The cortina for this large Cortinarius is very thick and flexuous. Sometimes flexible enough to not break when pushed-especially with young specimens. Incurved, thick margins on cap.
