This is from a small stand of pine, I doubt naturally occuring

but I’m not sure. It is in the woods near the boundary of a nature preserve and a public park with several wood chip beds, but none of them have fruited any morels. This is the only place where morels have fruited in substantial numbers this season that I’ve come across. M. angusticeps and M. punctipes were also found in the area.

It does

but only in landscape type habitats I think?

Does that species occur in the NE US?

Morchella rufobrunnea? This looks very similar to Paul Stamets’ specimen.

This specimen was growing solitary on a piece of rotting pine, completely attached to it. Others in the area were growing from the ground.
