For the help with these… I thought initially maybe super young primordia of Vibrissia truncorum but was pretty confused. The Alpental website-key is pretty good for most of these mid level and montane fungi. Noah, I know we missed connecting in the past for the Spring Morchella… This year is coming early, we just went up a local spot and found no snow. Soil smell spermatic, super close to ascomycete fest! Also, it’s a locale where the forest service practices seasonal, controlled burns. Maybe a collection weekend is in order?

Thanks to both of you- let’s leave them both just in case someone(Adolf and Aluna?) has some input in the future.

I agree with Danny,

You can find both species growing together though;

The more orange, cup-shaped ones in the background are Chloroscypha alutipes
