Collector's Notes: Attached is a photo of mushroom that I collected in my yard here in [---] Nevada. I collected the large one on April 27th and the small ones on May 2nd. I have large cotonwood trees that drop leaves in the fall. I leave them for mulch through the winter. This winter we had a record snow of 4 feet, and many rain showers since. I have lived here for 20 years and this is the first time that I have seen this type of mushroom.

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