I found this growing under some bushes, I know its not active but I was wondering what type it is.
I don't know how to make a spore print from this type of mushroom.
The habitat was : Michigan and they are growing under a few bushes.
The Measurment is: cap- 4 inches long, 2 1/2 inches wide.
The characteristics are: its completely hollow, it's a tan/ cream color.
The cap is long and tube like.
It hasn't really bruised.
It smells like a normal mushroom.

yeh, looks to be an old morel, Morchella esculenta. They're edible and good, but that one is past eating stage :\ .

Any other opinions? I am currently trying to make a spore print from it. I'm using a red piece of paper, a glass, the spongey part of the Morel, and a paper plate. They have all been cleaned with 70% isopropyl alcohol. (however you spell it lol). I'll post a pic in a minute. Does it sound good?

It's a morel for sure, no debating that. As far as spores for morels go... I seem to remember that they're transparent.
