Morel Hunting in Colorado
    #1516304 - 05/03/03 01:23 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

OK, I went out for a hike today to hunt morels.

There have been some questions recently on morel habitat. In the area shown in this photo...


...I picked these 45 morels with a total weight of 520 grams. I also got scratched up pretty good. Some of that underbrush has thorns! The biggest one is a little under 5 inches tall.



Of course, there weren't only morels around. I haven't finished identifying most of the rest of these, but here are some photos and I will update any IDs I make.

On the other side of the big log in the habitat photo above (on that log) there were some clusters of Pleurotus pulmonarius. They have a pale lilac spore print.


These look to be Tricholomas, close to Tricholoma virgatum. These were in an open grassy area near cottonwoods. The biggest one is about 3 centimeters across. In person they are grayer than they look in the photo.


Fairly near to those were these, which look like Hebeloma at first glance. I haven't IDed them accurately to genus yet. They were growing in a very open area near cottonwoods. The biggest one is about 2.5 centimeters across.


Also nearby were these guys, close to Stropharia riparia. They were growing in a open area near cottonwoods. The biggest one is about 4 centimeters across.


Finally, I found these growing under a box elder tree. At first glance they appear to be Cortinarius, but I'm still verifying that (no cortina was present, and they're not young). If they are Cortinarius, they're in the baffling subgenus Telamonia. The odd color of the spore print on the lower caps in the photo is intriguing, because the spore print is more of a typical rusty color. The biggest one is about 4 centimeters across.

Happy mushrooming!

no morels arent active they are a delicious edible. peace

P.S. that pic with all the morels lined up would be good for the faq since there is like one picture and you really cant see any details on the mushrooms in it.

Awesome field work and a very thorough documentation of fungal growth in your area.
Between the forageing, the photographing and identification of not only fruitbodies but also included are the habitats..
And with a handsome amount of delicious Morel treats,
-I have no other choice but to give you get an A+ rating for this field report ToxicMan

Thank you sir,
