Elfin Saddle

Helvella lactea

Description:

It was approximately 6 cm tall, creamy white, the cap was attached to the stem, the stem was ridged, and the undersurface of the cap was smooth.

Habitat:

Habitat: I spotted this mushroom growing alone on a steep incline in a mostly coniferous forest (hemlock, pine, ash, maple).

Notes:

*Note: I think this is Helvella lactea because the underside of the cap was smooth. However, H. lactea is not common and this mushroom could be Helvella crispa.
