Who: Clive Shirley (myxo)
Morels are believed not to be native to New Zealand and most found are in urban habitats or on disturbed ground and are very rear. As yet I have not found one in 30 years of having an interest in fungi. So to my surprise twice this spring I have been sent photos to identify a mysterious fungi both of which have been found in beech forests. Other then recognizing it as a Morels I have no idea over species. So hoping some one will happen to recognise it!!
