is the so called “Natural Black Morel” from western coniferous forest. It’s Morchella snyderi sensu Kuo, but I’m hesitant to apply that name to all the dust settles in regards to Morchella taxonomy.

It grows in fir forest, usually in places that got some sort of disturbance 3-20 years previous.

They had a very good year in the Shasta area, especially under Red Fir.

Can you provide

more information about the site these were found at? Open area? Under partial canopy? Full canopy? Recently cleared area or roadbuilding?
