Morels or false morels?
    #25876451 - 03/15/19 07:22 PM (4 days, 9 hours ago)

Found these black walnut looking specimens and wondered wtf kinda black magic was going on... they are very spongey and have web like stems...
Found in southern California... All information is appreciated...supposedly you can eat these if you cook them first...

I think it's Helvella lacunosa.
In the future try to get pics in the habitat where they are found.

Could be if he found it in Europe.  In Southern California, Helvella dryophila is super common right now, I bet it was under Quercus agrifolia.  They are good edibles, I ate some I found in LA a couple weeks ago.

I am giving a free talk in LA in a couple days...http://lamushrooms.org/calendar.html

Hey Alan, I found something similar just recently but near some conifers and ID it as Helvella vespertina. (I'm located up in the Humboldt area)

But I tossed them seeing warnings about them in regards to their edibility. But I do know where a decent amount are growing right now. Am I just being paranoid, or should I give these a try?

You are just being paranoid.

Nothing about this looks appetizing, it's not something I would have considered eating, but I trust Alan, if he says it's good,  I'd try it.

DISCLAIMER: I study the macro/micro taxonomy of mushrooms, but I can make mistakes, I'm human, not to mention identification from pictures is difficult. If you want to eat it, varify all identifications of non actives before doing so, it's up to you to be sure we are right.

I don't know much of that Sp. But where I live I pick and consume a similar mushroom that is considered toxic. It's in the gyromitra, looks quite similar. I prefer them to morels.

I am in no way telling you to eat those, that would be wreckless since I know nothing about that mushroom. I was just noting the similarity.
