When: 2013-06-01

Collection location: Blewett Pass, Washington, USA [Click for map]

Who: Drew Henderson (Hendre17)

No specimen available

All specimens(or should I say clusters) within two feet of one another in ash and dirt beneath charred ponderosa pine and doug fir- my wife called these “octorels” throughout the day. Seemed to be the same taxon of Morchella every time exhibiting this clustered, cespitose fruiting behavior. Caps and ridges almost peach or pinkish colored in the sunlight. Largest were short in stature and conical-3in. Never encountered morels with this coloring before this season.

This massive forest burn occurred last summer for months.

Temp: upper 60’s.

Elevation: 4100ft.
