Description:

Cantharellus subalbidus, the white chanterelle, is a fungus native to California and the Pacific Northwest region of North America. It is a member of the genus Cantharellus along with other popular edible chanterelles. It is similar in appearance to other chanterelles except for its cream to white color and orange bruising. C. subalbidus may form a mycorrhizal association with species of pine, hemlock, Douglas-fir, and Pacific madrone. C. subalbidus has been found to be more common in old-growth forests than in younger forests.

Edibility:

Choice and often commercially harvested.
