Without my books to hand, and opening myself to some derision, they look like girolle or chanterelle family.
What environment were they in, and which country, thanks.

Keep coming back to Hygrophoropsis aurantiaca, False Chanterelle
But the colour is not as vibrant as I'd expect. Just from one photo it's a wee bit difficult, as there are other similar chanterelles and trumpet shaped fungi.

There are others on the forum that knock me into a cocked hat.

Hi all,

I think we can rule out Hygrophoropsis (false chanterelle) because that genus has dichotomously branched gills - I can't see any branching on the photo.

Also, the 'true' Chanterelles tend not to have real gills, but 'wrinkles' that anastomose irregularly.

I think you might have a malformed Laccaria sp.

Cheers,
Nick
