County or City: Washoe
State or Province: NV
Country: USA

Collector's Notes: I have discovered about 20 or more morels?? in the wood chips on my front yard. [The specimen mailed] is very hairy on the cap, most of the others are not. As for growing conditions. We had later snows that wet the ground and the redwood bark chips and kept the temp in the 30's for most of the spring. Lots of dull days at about 4500 feet elevation. There was some Osmocoat fertilize trasnsported in from adjacent newly purchased and planted shrubs and ground cover.

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