Observation 20558: Morchella diminutiva M.Kuo, Dewsbury, Moncalvo & S.L.Stephenson
When: 2009-04-22
No herbarium specimen

Notes: These small morels were found on a rather dry ridge top, and they were not associated with dead elm. The flesh is thinner, and the stems are grainier than the larger morels I have been finding under dead elm in the same park. I suspect this is a different species.
