Observation 44287: Morchella Dill. ex Pers.

Well this is a black morel comonly known as Morchella elata group. Every field guide list this. I realize that that is taken form the Eorpean group but untill some one comes up with a real name im sticking to this one.
Found growing under tulip tree. this was the only one growing there. I believe it is the first morel in West Virginia. This is typical for the blacks in shape and statures.

This one really is going in my herbarium. This one is part of my experiment. Today with what little time I had, I went to another one of my experimental patches and counted but did not recover at this time, about 125 of them. Tomorrow morning at dawn I’ll be collecting these guys and those are headed for the kitchen.

Nice Eddee
