Description
Craterellus tubaeformis (formerly Cantharellus tubaeformis) is an edible fungus, also known as Yellowfoot, winter mushroom, or Trumpet Chanterelle. It is small to medium-sized, funnel-shaped, dingy-brown cap has forked veins instead of gills and a yellowish stem. It grows on moss and found mostly in conifer bogs.

Cap dark grayish brown, convex and sometimes hollow down the middle. The forked veins are widely separated, and of lighter color than the cap. Stem yellowish, more or less equal but often flattened, hollow. Flesh thin and membranous.

Similar species Chrysomphalina chrysophylla, which has gills instead of veins.
