Observation 65875: Morchella Dill. ex Pers.
When: 2011-04-20
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Completely different strain of Morchella from our earlier collections in Tumwater this morning. These have all the characteristics of the yellow Morels that we come across later in the season in Eastern Washington usually.

Found about 50 yards from other 17th rd. post today.

Fruiting in a less disturbed “natural” setting beneath Salal and Oregon grape in a conifer canopy.

Temp- mid to upper 50’s bright and sunny!

Heavy rains steady last few weeks.

Many Pseudoplectania, Gyromitra esculenta and Trichoglossum species close by in same substrate.

Most of these Morchella had already been consumed by larva on tops of spore bearing structure unfortunately :(
