Found in daytime around paved walking trail. Flew onto a loblolly pine trunk where we were able to get a picture.
sorry for the low-res photo
When I approached this beetle, it waved its antennae in an defensive/aggressive manner. Tile-horned beetle?

Viewed from above, these did look like chanterelles. The cap of the specimen to the right hadn't faded and was quite orange. The stem discolored brownish and was somewhat velvety, as described by Michael Kuo here: http://www.mushroomexpert.com/hygrophoropsis_aurantiaca.html
Growing on woody substrate, ground-level.
Slightly acrid taste.
