morels?

Recommended Posts

I am pretty confident that this is a Yellow Morel but please confirm just to be sure. Found this for the first time in New Jersey

Probably the classic North American Yellow Morel species, Morchella americana (previously M. esculenta and briefly M. esculentoides). Up here in NE PA I checked a spot for early morels today (eastern NA Black Morels, M. angusticeps). None yet. But I saw some Devil's Urns (Urnula craterium), a species which generally fruits about one week in advance of the Black Morels.      Urnua_craterium_Sh2_4-14_2.thumb.JPG.a25e1bfd923519992b430c2b3a0ba5e1.JPG

Thank you Dave,

I do not remember seeing Devil's Urns in NJ but I will pay attention now. Do they like similar habitats as Morels?

I find the Devil's Urns in hardwood forests where Black Morels are also found. Seeing the urns lets me know that --as long as the weather cooperates-- the morels are no more than one week away.
