Collection Date: July 07, 2004

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

Collector's Notes: Black Fuzzy (Grey Morel). Burn date: Summer 2003. Habitat: North facing slope at approx 5000 ft. The collection area was a combination of both tree covered and open areas on a fairly steep slope. There were springs and seeps located throughout the area. The tree covered areas still had canopy as the fire just went through the understory. This was a late season collection. 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.
