Identification Help Chanterelles?

Hey guys,

Just recently went mushroom picking and my wife and I do not normally pick chanterelles, but they were everywhere this weekend. Just wondering if anyone could identify these for us, would love to try these. The gills have me worried if these are the jack o lanterns?

I hope the pictures are clear enough. Thank You!

Look like Cantharellus flavus to me. People say golden chanterelle but that can mean 3 or 4 species - I'm not being a critic when I say that. I'm just saying it helps to know the whole genus, and if you do, knowing the names for every species is perhaps not a problem. I'm going to try and show pictures of what I think are flavus, phasmatis, and cinnabarinus. First one, flavus has narrow "stem", sharp false-gills and is orange/golden on stem and gills, and does not need gravelly soil. Second one, the common one near me, like gravelly kames and eskers, north faces, and has whitish false gills and fat stem, and less prominant gills, and color is more yellow than orange typically. Third one, cinnabar chants are smaller, very narrow stems, more obviously wrinkly false gills, and have the color of their name. These are hardly the only species. Flavus is most difficult cause the false gills nearly look like true ones. You must study jack-o-lantern. They come in a gang that has stems converging, are often larger, near base of oak, particularly black oak. Know them well. There are also tiny shrooms like cinnabar with white sharp gills that I'm not sure what they are. Get used to the possibility that the shroom in hand has no name, and is not well known to science, and that you are not sure of the order, much less the genus.
