Collection Date: May 22, 2003

County or City: DuPage
State or Province: IL
Country: USA

Collector's Notes: Thurs. eve 5/22 found againg morel (probably yellow) mushrooms growing under our deck in our backyard. GIGANTIC! compared to ones we used to find in eastern IA, and considerably later than the "normal" Mother's Day weekend finding/picking time, as was traditional in IA. We have a dying apple tree remnant (part of it still alive, mostly dead), right near the deck, and there are old leaves under there also. The weather here in northeastern IL (Chicago suburb) has been cooler and rainier than normal for most of May.

Note: Collection identified by RFLP as Morchella esculentoides. Not sequenced; not cited in Kuo et al., 2012.
