Collector's Notes: Tulip Morel (yellow colored). This morel is different looking than the standard yellows that grow under apple and elm trees. It never gets wide or large.

Plants: Mayapples 1 foot tall, jewelweed. Soil Temperature: 62 degrees.

Note: This collection has been identified as Morchella diminutiva, and is cited in Kuo et al., 2012.
