and noting reported spore dimensions, it is clear that examination of spores is necessary to confidently distinguish G. korfii from Discina brunnea (Gyromitra brunnea); in at least some cases.

Originally, there were photos of two specimens. The one photo that’s been removed is now seen in a separate post.

Folds are more rounded that creased. Probably an example of G. korfii that superficially resembles Discina brunnea (Gyromitra brunnea).
