Re: Traverse city--oh my smellinmorelin!!!!

Thank you. All of you.. for your nice comments. Thank you for the back ground Knowledge Frank. It's an Honor to share this with a great bunch of people and wonderful web site. I'm no mushroom expert but I do know what a morel looks like. I do have to say, My heart about jumped out of my body when I spotted them..I stopped for a minute and could not believe my eyes. It was just luck.......ed

That is the true black M.elata, notice the solid black color, from top of ridge to the bottom of the pits,definetely not like the southern range black morel, or which most people refer to as the black which is actually Pecks or M.angusticeps, mike

Jon, I will catch hel for this by other opinions, but you are correct on blacks and the categorization of them, on the complex of the grey/yellow, I believe that there is one that starts off light greyish/white and turns to a blonde color, known as M.deliciosa, the other is a grey that turns into a yellow, known as M.esculenta, probably my opinion, we should hear more on this soon,mike

I found a cluster of 5 like that 2 years ago near Mancelona. I picked them and ate them all the same, they were delicious.

My opinion is that there are 5 species.
M. Elata is the darker, thicker black.
M. Angusticeps is the brownish-black, thinner skinned variety.
M. Esculenta has the most variations in appearance, and is the first of the lighter varieties to appear (typically grey the first few days, it can either stay grey or turn yellow as it matures).
M. Crassipies (big foot) seems to have more ridges, start later, grow taller and always be blonde to even redish in color.
M. Deliciosa is the least known and last to appear, and never gets all that big. I think of the cap as an inverted heart shape, and the ridges run closer to parallel lines, with fewer pits - the color and flavor are like M. Esculenta.
