Observation 65872: Morchella importuna M.Kuo, O’Donnell & T.J.Volk
When: 2011-04-20
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Lots of construction from last year on this road prompted these ascomycetes to float on the scene- all it took was a good 10 degree temp boost and some lamp posts for added nightly heat I think :)

We found a large fruting on a similar substrate along a road in West Olympia last year beneath new lamp posts/in gravel as well.

Finally they’re here in what looks to be full swing!

Everything is behind schedule here in Michigan,not much in the woods.I have found only a few Velvet Foots and Tree Ears.But I have never found Morels growing in conditions like these in the pics in Michigan in over 40+ years of hunting them.

Look near construction sights-

Especially where large lamp posts(such as the ones in this post) reside.

Feel so blessed and lucky to have stumbled across these-

Any mid western morels staying stuck to the ground this year? I know it’s been windy over there for you guys >.<

Wish I could find some growing along the road!!
