Forked gills are a helpful

Forked gills are a helpful ID. Chanterelles do not have gills. Not generally recommended that you eat these though.

thank you

I didnt swallow any just a nibble and then spat it out as some guides advise to do so, I would never even taste the Amantia family and others that I have an inkling are of a toxic/poisons persuasion. Many thanks ben
