Gomphus clavatus is a distinctive member of the Chanterelle family. Note the blunt forking ridged under the cap rather than the blade-like gills of the previous 3 species. Gomphus clavatus is rated as a choice edible species but unlike the white and yellow Chanterelles, it is readily invaded by fly larvae and so is hard to find in prime condition.
