Main Records Page

Collection Date: June 30, 2004

County or City: Missoula
State or Province: MT
Country: USA

Collector's Notes: Grey morel. Burn date: Summer 2003. Habitat: Approx 4500 ft., "flat" with no real aspect. This collection was made late in the season. Mushrooms were found under trees or fallen logs that offered shade for at least part of the day. At the time this collection was made, there were no mushrooms found at this collection site in open areas. The open areas had produced mushrooms (conicas) about a month before this collection was made, but now only areas that offered some shade were producing new mushroom growth. The highest producing areas at this collection site were little moist depressions that were tree covered. Note about the names used by collector: Around here "Grey Morel" seems to be a generic name for late season morels that appear after the conicas. The "greys" appear to encompass a couple different species, or subspecies, of morels.

Note: This collection has been identified as Morchella tomentosa, and is cited in Kuo, 2008.
