But agreed that what I had was very likely. M. rufobrunnea


M. rufobrunnea is known for non-spring fruitings?

I just read in Fungi V4#2 (Spring 2011) pg. 17 that M. rufobrunnea is known for being able to fruit at almost any time of year… interesting…

Very unusual, Tim.

In 35 years of collecting, I’ve found Morchella in October only once before. Must have been the perfect combination of moisture, substrate, and fungus.

Nope, just fruiting in landscape mulch

Don’t find many Morchella fruiting in October. Was this an attempt (or a success) at cultivation?
