Other Mushrooms: Please help? Urgent so they don't get wasted due to my stupidity
General Information: I thought I was finding Chanterelles but then I started tho second guess myself...after picking a plethora of them like a dummy. Can you please tell me if the ones on the purple paper look like some type of them to you or something else? Spore print is white to off white, the stem becomes hollow with age, the scent is actually pleasant, it's a firm mushroom and the gills are attached and flow smoothly into the stem. What got me wondering if I was mistaken was that I found a patch of the two little guys on the black paper in the photo. They have the same spore print as the other ones, the same scent and concave cap... but the gills are noticeably different (and I know that Chanterelles don't have true gills, correct?). Please help me if you can, before these and all the others go to waste. I'm new to shroomin` and still have so much to learn! I realize that you can only give me you're best guess when all you have to go by is a picture but any help would be awesome. Thank you!
