I found 3 more a couple of days ago and dried them. If someone is interested in doing some research on them, let me know.I will send you one. The only problem may be is contamination from drying them with other morels.

nice find

definitely looks more like an albino than a “blonde”.

Looks like Kuo Taxon 12
