Observation 10471: Gyromitra esculenta (Pers.) Fr.

When: 2008-05-16

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

A large fruiting in an open area in pine woods. Some resemble true morels; others are much more clearly wrinkly brain-like false morels in form. Since they were all in the same general area, it seems likely that they were all false morels of the same species. The location, under conifers, and appearance suggest G. esculenta.
