    I have a local Missouri mushroom book and can't find it. I have also used my google-fu with no results. It hasn't rained here in about a week, so they are somewhat dry. They are growing out from the gravel slope of our driveway, about 3-4ft from forest (oak, hickory). This one is about 2 inches tall and the spread is about 2-3 inches. I do know they get much larger since a few months back there was a large group of them (about 7 or 8) growing out from the dirt in the same area. Biggest being about 4-5" across and about 3-4" in height.

    I live in roughly central Missouri.

    I am not from your area of the world, I suggest you share the photos with a local mycological (mushroom) society. You have taken great photos, showing the gills of the mushroom, that will help whoever can help key it out. Good luck, sorry I can not help further

    It looks like a chanterelle or maybe a small "chicken of the woods" , I can't confirm as I'm not near my reference books but I will try again later when I finish work.



    I'll try and identify this later.

    Thanks for the responses for far. I haven't seen more pop up so I am unable to get better pictures, unfortunately. I am still stumped as well.
