I once found Gyromitra korfii and Gyromitra fastigiata (brunnea) within a couple feet of each other and did not see any other false morels in the area which I searched carefully looking for morels…

These two specimens (that were on display at the SDMS Fungus Fair) were found within a meter of each other and within the same 10m-squared area in which a scattering of other (black-pigmented) Helvella lacunosa were found, during a SDMS-team foray on 2010-02-20. These H. lacunosa were found under a cluster of oaks along a river terrace at the lower elevations of Lake Jennings Park.
No H. crispa, let alone other albino H. lacunosa, were found by any of the other foray team members.
