County or City: Pickering
State or Province: ON

Collector's Notes: Most of the 28 this week grew into golf-ball like shapes while some were 2 inch cone shapes. They grew in clusters of 3-4 and covered an area 6ft. x 10ft. These grew in my filled in swimming pool in my backyard, and the fill is 4 truckloads of sand with a 2inch sprinkling of top soil and old plants I scrounged from an old closed down farm, 5 miles north of here. 2 old oak trees and dozens of white pine were growing in the near by vicinity of this soil which I obtained in the summer of 2002. These samples I am sending you, grew during a wet and cool 2 weeks, with only 2 days of hot sun.

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