Cantharellus viscosus

Bigger than C. concinnus, smaller than C. aff. confluens. Common on the Sunshine coast, in 2019 I found some near Maxville and Northern NSW. The Chanterelles are around the same time that the Bunyas drop in QLD but later in NSW.

Chanterelles lack true gills, instead they have folds with networks of interwoven veins.


Various shapes and sizes.
