  1. Hello from the land of the rising sun! I have a question for all you experts. I live in southern Japan and every March I get Morchella growing in my garden. I have tentatively IDed them as M. elata, but I'm not sure. Please have a look and let me know what you all think. Importantly, these should be edible, yes? All the people here I show these to say they have no knowledge of them being eaten, which is crazy given how much folks love them throughout the world. I should mention I am an American who collected morels in the woods of New York as a child. Thanks!
  2. Here are some of the morels that the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse Mycology Club has found over the past week. They have been found mainly under dead elms on south facing slope.
  3. Hey Dave! I thought I'd answer your question on a different thread, as I didn't want to take away from the excellent conversation going on in "2015". Also, I'd love to hear from others about what they have or haven't seen concerning Burn-Site Morels East of the Rockies. I am pretty sure that I found burn-site morels in Kentucky. I was astonished as well, as I had gathered from my readings that they only occurred in the west, but there they were! In the summer of 2010 we had some forest fires in the Daniel Boone National Forest. The following spring, actually the third Saturday in April, 2011, I was hiking a favorite trail to asses the damage. I wasn't even hunting morels, as I've never found them on this ridge top at all, but when I happened to look down at the roots of some burned Mountain Laurel, I found that I was surrounded by what looked like a bunch of burned pine cones. There were just so many of them, and I don't usually see black Morels clustered. I collected at this spot and others for a full month. Some were lighter in color than the first I found, but all gregarious. I've never seen a single Morel in these spots since. I did post the attached picture to this website at the time, but as no one seemed surprised by the circumstances or the location, I figured that I was mistaken about the West vs East thing. I also sent a few emails about it to some other mushroom sites, but again didn't hear back at the time. I even saved some dried specimens back in case someone wanted to examine them. (I have since eaten them as there were no takers). The same thing happened in 2012 in a different, recently burned site. Since then we have had a break from fires (hurrah!) until the fall of 2014. When I checked this past spring, there were no Morels at the burn sites (recent or old). All this circumstantial evidence before you, has anyone else found what they thought were burn-site Morels east of the Rockies?
