Index fungorum lists verpa as the correct genus here:

preferred name is green; old names are in blue.

apparently using Ptychoverpa is a European custom, but seeing as we’re in
N. America, unless somebody can convince me otherwise, I’d use Verpa.

well I depreciated Verpa bohemica and …does that mean it is not right I mean it is Verpa bohemica? some Authers call it Ptychoverpa bohemica and say that it is the right name….so….

index fungorum just calls ’em verpa bohemica.

Do they come back?

I don’t know, I haven’t found too many of them. I did find
a lot of Morchella semilibra last year. They are said not to
come back every year, but it must have been one of the good years.

I dried them first

after driying tham I parboiled them befor I used them in cooking…I did not eat too many at a time,
I hope to find some this year …Do they come back in the same place year after year?

Edible with caution

I’ve read mostly these are edible with caution. One of the side
effects noticed where a lot were eaten was slight loss of muscular
coordination (Nancy Smith Weber in "Morel Hunter’s Companion).
You should be OK if you don’t eat a lot. BTW, those are HUGE.

They tasted good
