In fact I’ve found all three (in succession) at some of the same locations. Gyromitra esculenta seems to outcompete Morchella (at least this year) — at most I find one or two morels growing at the edge of a Gyromitra patch, but never mixed with them. The three morels (plus Verpa bohemica) mix together promiscuously.

Habitat differences?

Do you notice any consistent habitat differences between the different types of morels you’ve been collecting?
