Saturday harvest, Barry County

Picked 200+ in Barry County, whites and deliciosa's and I hate to see deliciosa's because it means the season is well advanced, not a good sign, but oh what fun picking them.

Jon the only place I have seen a reference to it, is in a morel hunters companion by Nancy Smith Weber, the real difference is the large pits and small overall size at maturity, I found these mostly on high ground under cherry trees and tulip poplars, which only appear to about Grand Rapids, and on one occasion I found them under an apple tree, they definitely are a different species of morels, I usually look for this species after the common morel is about gone. It's probably one of the least picked morels in Michigan do to the small size after seeing the big whites and yellows, there might be other out there that know more about the species than I do, but I have been collecting it for almost 15 years. The guy from Delton may be able to shed more light on the subject. We will post to pic's from this weekend find, hopefully this helps you out.

I put a common morel at the top of picture so you can compare the two, pay close attention to the number and size of the pits and ridges.

I hunt a woods every year with almost exclusively cherry trees and find hundreds of the deliciosa near the cherry trees. In a good year I will take home over 1,000 of these beautiful little shrooms from an area about 2 acres. They are very distinctive in there appearance and size. There is also a yellow version of the deliciosa that I find in the same woods. Scroll down in this link to learn more.

In my experience, when most people refer to the "Gray" mushroom they are not talking about this mushroom. They are talking about the M. Esculenta that grows under the dead elms and can appear gray in it's early growth stages.
