Quoting Michael Kuo: “One of two North American, DNA-defined, putative species corresponding to Mitrophora semilibera, a European morel species that should be named Morchella semilibera and that cannot be compared to North American mushrooms until the Europeans get their act together.”

We have not heard the last word on this one. This west coast posting looks a bit different to me. http://mushroomobserver.org/45267?q=4DbJ
