When: 2013-05-26

Collection location: Yakima Co., Washington, USA [Click for map]

Who: BlueCanoe

No specimen available

Found in mixed-conifer forest at mid elevation. No deciduous trees in the vicinity. I estimate these to have been less than 1% of the total morels found in this area, the rest being dark-colored.


bisected specimen surrounded by dark-colored morels (likely M. snyderi)
