The Wooly Chanterelle, Gomphus floccosus is a "Trumpet" mushroom, but is in a different genus than the Chanterelle considered "choice" for eating. The edible Chanterelle, Cantharellus cibarius, has a smooth cone-shaped cap, where ours is scaley inside. Amanda says it is the largest specimen she's seen. We wrapped it in waxed paper and put it in the fridge last night, and today, although a little darker on the ribby stalk, it is still in good shape. She will slice it and put it in the dehydrator to become a specimen in the New Brunswick Museum.
