State or Province: AR
Country: USA

Collector's Notes: The yellow was found near a small lake, growing near sycamore trees. There are some other trees ringing this little lake - elm, willow, cherry, dogwood and redbud, but I always find them near the sycamores. In some sections where I find them it's only sycamore. They usually grow not right near the water, but about 6 -10 feet up, where the bank flattens out into level ground. This may be also because the ground cover (honeysuckle vines with deep sycamore leaf build-up) thins out there and gives way to gravel. Here in the Arkansas Ozarks I often find them near sycamore, it's probably the best place after elms. I also find them occasionally near northern red oaks.

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