|Hello everyone. What might these be? I was thinking Chanterelles but it's my first hunt and want to be sure. They are not at the base of a hard wood but about 30 - 50 feet away from some large ones. This is almost on the stump of a dead yew. Very rubbery gills. They do not break off when rubbed. Found in a large round cluster.
Thank you in advance for all your help!

Personally, I would never harvest or eat any mushroom unless and until I was positive of the identification. Can you find a local expert or guide who can show you which is which?

| Many mushrooms contain neurotoxins - highly poisonous even in small amounts - so it's absolutely not worth taking a chance on a mushroom you're not sure of.|
That one doesn't look like it's got enough yellow color to be a chanterelle.

|I thought Chanterelles were more trumpet shaped! To me, yours do not look like them.|
