Observation 20951: Gyromitra esculenta (Pers.) Fr.

When: 2009-05-11

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

Found a fourth patch of these. It’s nowhere near any trail; I found it after leaving the trail network in the southeast part of the woods and bulling my way north for a few hundred meters. It’s maybe 100 meters south of Elgin Street. They were scattered over a sizable area, comparable in size to the first false-morel patch I discovered in those woods last year.

The first three patches were all in dry, open pine-dominated areas of wood. This one is in a low, wet mixed wood, which surprised me.

The first photo shows a single specimen being attacked by a slug. The next two show a different, exceptionally large and wrinkly specimen.
