Observation 29177: Morchella Dill. ex Pers.
When: 2009-11-18
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Morels are believed not to be native to New Zealand and most found are in urban habitats or on disturbed ground and are very rear. As yet I have not found one in 30 years of having an interest in fungi. So to my surprise twice this spring I have been sent photos to identify a mysterious fungi both of which have been found in beech forests. Other then recognizing it as a Morels I have no idea over species. So hoping some one will happen to recognise it!!

is what we call it in Scandinavia too – and we don’t have that many confusing species here.

It looks just like our northeastern US Morchella elata. But. We don’t know how to tell them all apart or even how many species we have in the US…
