as it was one of those checked by Kuo et. al. and listed in their recent paper.
From the “Yosemite Collections”.

it is illegal to hunt Yosemite NP, except with a permit, which Ron, as a named field assistant, currently has. UC Berkeley, UCSF and Humboldt State University are all part of this pioneering fungal survey of the Park. This is our first year collecting, and if all goes well, the project will continue for five years.

nice find of big morels Ron!

are you going to try to grow them? or is it the black ones that are easier to grow?
