Observation 93166: Morchella importuna M.Kuo, O’Donnell & T.J.Volk

Fruiting abundantly in recently introduced landscape bark(large pieces of alder) along the entryway road and parking lot of the bird refuge. Landscaping began late last Spring(2011). Not sure if these are M.ruffobrunea or M.importuna. Some specimens had reddish discoloration on pits, while at the same time most pits were arranged vertically. They were exhibiting many fruiting characteristics of the M.importuna, as well(e.g-fruiting from the edge of cement and gravel against the road).

Temp: upper 60’s, partly cloudy.
