Collector's Notes: I found these growing in the parkway in front of our house in Chicago. We have three garden areas in front of our house. There are morels in two of those areas. Actually, I found nests of them this morning. Last October, we planted two Japanese maples. A large beauty called Shishigashira, and a small cascading type, Inaba Shidare. We got these from Gethsemane Nursery, a superior city nursery on the north side of Chicago. These two trees came from Oregon. And the morels are only growing in the two gardens where the new Japanese maples are. [Spore print color orange-yellow.]

Note: Collection appears to match Morchella punctipes. Not sequenced; not cited in Kuo et al., 2012.
