Collection Date: July 13, 2004

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

Collector's Notes: Grey Morel. Burn date: Summer 2003. South facing slope at approx 5000 ft. The collection area was in a mature forest with natural springs and seeps. The fire went through the understory and burned in a mosaic pattern, but it didn't burn the canopy. 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.
