What kind of mushroom is this? It was growing on or near a dead live oak. (That's right.) Location, Los Angeles County, elevation 2000-ish ft. I don't need to know the exact species. Just a general name will do.

I did some more looking around, and I think it is an oak chanterelle. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cantharellus_californicus

Yeah, yeah - Nawlins is cool with all the jazz and Mardi Gras, but I bet they still just cook their mushrooms.

I'd much rather have chanterelles thrown to me than beads, though...

Oh No VV...we eat them too. GRIN

Chanterelle soup with white wine and heavy cream, chanterelle, bacon and sun dried tomato fettucine, salmon with grilled chanterelles, peppers and onions, swordfish with a chanterelle dijon and sun dried tomato topping...BUT...you will never find a Mardi Gras float rider generous enough to toss out their stash of fresh chanterelles. Around here folks keep the growing locations to themselves.
