Cantharellaceae includes some of the best-tasting edible mushrooms found around the world. Unfortunately, in New Zealand, this is not the case. These mycorrhizal fungi have, in most cases, vase-shaped or funnel-shaped fruiting bodies, brightly coloured, with spore bearing surfaces that may be smooth, wrinkled, veined, or primitively gilled.
