Chanterelle

 

(Cantharellus cibarius), a capped mushroom that is bright yellow in color. At first the cap bulges; it subsequently becomes cone-shaped with wavy edges. Underneath the cap are forked and branched gills. This mushroom grows, often in abundance, during the summer and autumn in forests throughout the temperate zone. Chanterelles are edible and are not infested with the larvae of forest flies and mosquitoes.
