This springtime false morel is apparently limited to the midwestern and eastern parts of the United States. It is extremely variable in appearance, but it can be distinguished from other Gyromitra mushrooms by its tan to reddish brown cap, which is decidedly lobed and often gathered into two or three points, creating a saddle-shaped appearance. The surface of the underside of the cap is creamy to tan—and nearly always visible in “seams” where sections of the cap are joined.

how it is different from g esculenta?
