Black Morel

Morchella elata


Dark, conical ascocarp and more or less parallel vertical ridges, with horizontal interconnecting ridges arranged in a "ladderlike" pattern. Stem light-creamy and hollow.


On the soil, in a coniferous tree patch of a mountain forest.


There were some other caps lying around and a hollow stem still standing nearby. The caps gave a nice, pleasant smell when crushed.
