M. eximia (=M. septimelata) is morphologically indistinguishable from M.sextelata. About M. sextelata: “From a strictly morphological perspective the species is virtually identical to several members of the M. elata Clade (M. septimelata, M. brunnea, M. angusticeps, M.septentrionalis), but because it apparently is limited to conifer burn sites in western North America it can be easily separated from all but M. septimelata, from which it is morphologically and ecologically indistinguishable on the basis of currently available data.” Shouldn’t this obs be called Morchella? Or Morchella sect. Distantes?
