MDCP Record for 04300402
Collection Date: April 30, 2004
County or City: Webster
Collector's Notes: Grey Morel. These were both found just a few feet from the base of a dead elm tree, with several other dead elms near. The area is between a field and abandoned railroad track, almost ditch-like. Temp was 54 degrees, night time temps have been dropping near freezing. Not sure of soil temp. Had light rain this morning. This area had nice moist soil with patchy moss, while other areas adjacent were more dry (within 10'). This spot usually only has this sized mushrooms on it. While about 40 yards away I find bigger yellows near elms. The only difference in the areas are ground cover. Heavy leaf cover where these were found and thick vegetation where the bigger ones are found . . .
