We have a concept

about the black to dark species and that I am following. The one with mulch in parks aso. is called M.hortensis (now M.vaporaria), the one in deciduous woods in lower elevations M.elata and the one in coniferous woods at higher elevations M. conica … and there’s one with ribs turning reddish in age, that one is called M.deliciosa … but that’s just a concept. I think it is impossible to tell the species apart correctly and after some DNA done by a befriended mycologist it seems all of them are the same except M.vaporaria.

The name game

Morchella conica is sometimes synonymized with M. vulgaris, but no one seems to know for sure what was meant by conica. It could be a synonym to M. elata as well (even a mix of several species or forms of Morchella). I prefer to use the name Morchella elata on this one.
