Collector's Notes: Found for the sake of science I would like to post you the following information. Some years ago I rented an old house with other students. Unfortunately, the very small garden was used as a garbage belt for waste building materials: carpets, plastic, old wallpaper . . . In the spring i saw the strangest mushroom blossoming there, determination learned me that this specimen was a morel. Now, many years later, I bought a house and last year I renovated it entirely. This spring (right now) a big colony of morels has appeared under a heap of old plastic, wood and paper. From these two observations it seems that morels might like waste building materials...branches.

Note: This collection has been identified as Morchella importuna. It is not cited in Kuo et al., 2012.
