I believe that I found only Morchella esculenta
in this my second year of hunting. On the first foray after I joined BMC,
May 4, 2003, a young woman noticed a Morel about 2 feet from where she was
standing and waiting for the foray to begin. It was about 2" high and a
munch hole in the side.
On the foray that followed, no one found a live mushroom of any species. A one mushroom Foray :o)
The above young Morel looks a lot different from the mature specimen below:
Or this young one found by a BMC member in Marblehead in late April 2004.
