Observation 20558: Morchella diminutiva M.Kuo, Dewsbury, Moncalvo & S.L.Stephenson

When: 2009-04-22

Collection location: Strouds Run State Park, Athens, Ohio, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dan Molter (shroomydan)

No specimen available

These small morels were found on a rather dry ridge top, and they were not associated with dead elm. The flesh is thinner, and the stems are grainier than the larger morels I have been finding under dead elm in the same park. I suspect this is a different species.
