Do black morels grow here? That is a question I've asked myself for 3 years now, and my personal belief is they do not. I do the unscientific but popular Morel Distribution Maps for and I have yet to see or view a report from any website that collects data regarding morel finds that clearly defines a black morel find within the red rectangular box on the map below.

If any of you that view this site are within that geographical region, and have evidence that black morels fruit, would you consider sending me an email with your approximate location along with habitat and other natural features you have observed? A calender date would be helpful as well. I have no plans on visiting these locations or sharing personal information other than perhaps posting the results of my findings, and your reports on this page. Any help you can offer is appreciated and I thank you in advance.
