“goth morels” are now officially a “thing.”

Not sure about regularity

I hear they fruit later generally than the other burn morels and it was pretty warm and dry when I found them. Other species didn’t seem abundant. But this is my first year finding them so I’m not sure when exactly their normal fruiting is.

I decided they should be called goth morels. Pass it on! :)

is this early or normal for OR?
