Who: Eddee (eddeeee)

No specimen available

Notes:
Found these where the Morels grow. i have seen some big clusters growing on hard wood sticks and downed branches. I once sampled some as a culinary curiosity. They have good flavor but are a bit tough. I had no ill effect but i only ate three of them.

Hi Eddee. Please send any Urnula that you find. We need as many as possible to extract a useful chemical. You can just air dry them and send to:
