This small thick – footed morel frutied about 2 yards from a couple of slender “deliciosa” types. These are the only “yellows/grays” that I have found so far this season… excedingly early for these types. One small area nearbby a couple White Ash trees.

the new morchella taxonomy, this one still seems a bit confusing to me. Something in the esculenta clade. Found in the same patch at the same time (while very few other “yellow morels” were fruiting) as obs 92161 (linked below).
I snapped about 25 pics of this one, as it is a really appealing specimen that just happened to be in a nice setting. One thing about dry weather, mold/insects/rotting are inhibited. So whereas you may not fill your sack, the ones you do find tend to be in good condition.
VERY early season here. This one, and the ones seen in the linked obs (below) grew in a sunny area (about 3 square yards) nearby some live White Ash trees. Only a few small ones collected so far. I’ll need to start checking the apple tree spots soon.
I found some yellow morels yesterday on a dry ridgetop at Egypt Valley. The sweet-looking green spots down in the bottoms had no morels, but I found a couple pounds of them under dead elm and multiflora rose up top where I thought it would be way too dry. Very surprising.
We should all celebrate that! I think it is too dry and I hope it is too early. Definitely not a great season so far around here.
