Observation 239044: Morchella importuna M.Kuo, O’Donnell & T.J.Volk
When: 2016-04-23
(40.3469° -123.3931° 1060m)

Notes: Found in burned out stump depression that based upon needles I think was a fir tree. Location was in the middle of a fire – hot area as everything was scorched, no needles etc on the surrounding area

I gave a portion of the collection to Alan Rockefeller for sequencing and he recovered a really strong read back from it for ITS:


Alan notes that it 100% hits this other Morchella from the Lake County fire:

Original observation was in iNaturalist because of ease upload:
