They look like verpas to me, but cut them in half and look for white fibers inside the stem. I would toss them to be safe considering you have a zillion soaking. Great find

Re: 126 Near Lansing...

The three that you separated, and the one in the lower right of the first picture are verpas. I wouldn't eat them...

slice them in half if they are hollow they are fine. The verpa has a cotton like substance that fills the stem. From what I can see they look to be good ol pepper tops

If you continue to do what you have always done you will continue to get what you have always gotten. Semper Fi

They look like Verpa's to me too. They have ridges with hollows rather than pits that the true morel has.
And in the 2nd photo I can see at least one Cap floating by itself.

A half free will not lose the cap unless you work at it.

But a Verpa will lose them with just a thunk or knock, such as pouring them out of the bag or getting knocked around in the bag while hunting.

Toss em man and be safe.


Some of the best people are found right here. - You!

I agree most of them are the ones with cotton in the stem by the looks of them and don't eat them.
