something around Helvella elastica.

But this is a terrible genus with all kinds of intermediates between the species, and I still can’t find any work on their DNA (which eventually will mess things up even more for the experts..).

What Kind of Helvela?

First time I’ve seen these guys. I think Helvella is right, but I wonder which kind.
