Observation 204862: Helvella lacunosa group
When: 2015-05-23
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: I collected 3 fresh specimens on May 27. I brought them home, rinsed as much dirt off as would come off easily, then immediately put them in the food dryer.

see Observation 208728

The specimens look grey even in bright light.

They do have fusing along edges and to the stalk.

The stalk is about 1 – 1.25 inch long.

The caps are about 1.5 inch long. Total length is 2 to 2.5 inch due to being convoluted.

Complex “lacunosa”

Grey colors and shape of apothecia exclude H. crispa.
In my opinion, this collection enters in the H. lacunosa/sulcata complex.

I wondered about that. It appeared very gray in the deep shade. Looked more yellow-tan when the bright sun came through the tree canopy.
