The type(s) formerly known as “cibarius”…

that I collect here in PA (also NY) occur under a variety of trees… hemlock/oak combo, hemlock/birch combo, hardwoods with oak… In Vermont I collect a classic type exclusively under conifers… spruce for the most part, maybe some pine/hemlock as well.

Some of the collections in NY which seem to associate with oak feature a robust white stipe.

A small slender type that favors mossy areas near streams in hemlock/birch woods is common here in NE PA.

Seems pretty complicated to me. But as with Morchella americana, maybe there’s one species which features macro-diversity… possibly as a function of habitat.

There is some discussion here about this. http://mushroomobserver.org/138243?q=24qYX

Are we using the group name now for these?

Or do you think this is different from your obs 23149?
