Collector's Notes: Black morel. Here is an example of the high plateau wild black morels we find in the southern Oregon Cascade mountains. They are very plentiful most years. The date of this collection is just about mid-season for these high mountain jewels. We gather them around the high mountain lakes. The forest is composed of primarily Poderosa Pine and Douglas-Fir.

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