I did not pick it

I just photographed it at the monthly PSMS meeting.

More like oddly-formed Morchella.

Based on the cap and especially the stipe. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a verpa with that kind of stipe.

Was the cap semi-attached to the stipe? Photo doesn’t show. Most Verpas I’ve picked had tubular stipes. This thing has a flared base. Ratio of cap to stipe is unusual, too.

Was the cap semi-attached to the stipe? Photo doesn’t indicate it. Most Verpas I’ve picked had curious circular thingies and a nearly circular, tubular stipe. This thing has that flared base, too. Unusual in my (admittedly limited) experience.

Nothing?

Nothing to suggest V. bohemica? What do you think it is?

The photo does not support your observation. Is there something you’re not telling us?
