Gomphus bonariiBonar's gomphus
Gomphus clavatuspig's-ear gomphus, pig's-ear, pig's-ears
Distribution: Western
Habitat: Conifer forests
Gomphus floccosusscaly chanterelle, scaly vase chanterelle, wooly chanterelle
Description: Not truly wooly, Gomphus floccosus is more accurately characterized by the coarse scales that usually line its deeply vase-shaped cap. However, it is a highly variable fungus and the degree of scaliness is by no means constant. In its common form, the cap when fresh is a deep reddish orange, but fades with age and old pale specimens can be found that might seem to be a different fungus. The fertile surface is whitish to pale yellowish and highly wrinkled and forked, with portions appearing almost like pores in older specimens. The size of the fruitbodies varies from small-medium to fairly large and the shape can be tall and slender or short and squatty with the vase shape being more or less developed.
Distribution: Broad Common in Western and North America
