the shape of the “cap” is highly variable and can be roundish like in Morchella esculenta. Even the colours can be nearly the same shade. A main character to separate the “yellow morels” from the “black morels” are the longitudinal rips of the cap: Nearly straight in Morchella conica s.l., +/- in zig-zag in Morchella esculenta s.l.

correct me if i’m wrong

but aren’t the FBs in the 1st picture different from those in the second? much less conical, for one.

I was gonna complain about your sideways shot…
