Description
Craterellus tubaeformis, previously known as Cantharellus tubaeformis, is commonly referred to as Yellowfoot, winter mushroom, or Trumpet Chanterelle. It is a small to medium-sized fungus with a funnel-shaped, dingy-brown cap. Instead of gills, it features forked veins, and its stem is yellowish in colour. This species thrives on moss and is predominantly found in conifer bogs.

Cap dark yellowish brown to blackish brown, fading to greyish brown or greyish with age, convex and sometimes hollow down the middle. Veins decurrent, forked, widely separated, and of a lighter colour than the cap. Stem tall, yellowish, somewhat flattened and hollow and often slightly club-shaped or bulbous at the base. The basal mycelium is whitish to pale yellow. Flesh thin and membranous. Spore print white or very pale yellow.

Microscopic Features: The spores are subglobose or broadly ellipsoidal, measuring 8-12 x 6-10┬Ám. They have a smooth surface and are inamyloid.
