note attachment of hymenophore to stipe in 7th photo…

there is no “notable sinus” between the hymenophore and the stipe, which eliminates the two “blondes in cap color only,” that are really related to the “blacks”: frustrata (ain’t it so!) and snyderi.

the recent morel study has NOT delimited all of the possible western morels, nor really allowed us to safely put names to most morels in hand (or photo). IMO.
