Observation 66947: Verpa conica (O.F. Müll.) Sw.

When: 2011-05-02

Collection location: Luzerne Co., Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

No specimen available

Notes:
Found in an old apple orchard where I hunt morels. These Verpas seemed to favor damp/wet ground nearby completely dead apple trees. Saw at least 50; probably more. I’ve not ever before seen Verpas in this orchard which I have hunted every year since 1994. Up until this year, Verpas seemed very scarce around here. I’ve not ever seen V. bohemica in my area.
