White morels









There's probably 50 morels in this patch, growing in a half ring about 10-15 feet from a large cottonwood stump. I watered them yesterday to help them along.

Cool.Never seen them so light colored.

acording to Gary Novak
mushroom physiologist Morels are still evolving from yeast.
Each local strain of morels includes the standard variety of shapes plus various pigments. The standard shapes are cone, cylinder and round with gradations in between. Also, each of these comes in thin tissue or thick tissue. All of these variations are found together wherever morels come up.


variations are phenotypic but not genotypic. This means that each type is genetically the same, while appearance is different. The mechanism is similar to embryo development, where each cell has the same genes, but different tissues form. This result is possible, because some genes are turned on, while others are turned off. The phenotype photo page shows the source of these variations very clearly.

My results show that morels evolved from a yeast very recently, which means about 20 to 80 thousand years ago. As a result, the physiology of morels is still yeast-like, and the morphology is unstable. The instability shows up in two dramatic ways. One is an anomaly which forms under laboratory conditions when nutrition is adequately controlled. (The professors do not know how to study nutrition and are unaware of the anomaly.) The other major example is abnormal morphology when morels are grown by the Ower procedure. The appearance is sometimes like balloons with a smooth surface.

There are no other known species which undergo such exreme morphological aberrations. The strange formations occur for the morel because it evolved so recently from a species which had no complex morphology that it has not yet stabilized its morphology.


Another morphological trait of morels is that they grow on angles. Whatever direction they start growing as they emerge from the soil is the direction which they keep growing. No other mushrooms or plants do this (except palm trees). They measure gravity and grow vertically. The inability of the morel to measure gravity is additional evidence of its very recent evolution from an organism without macromorphology. This photograph shows the effect.

maybe you have a new without pigmented morel some look more yellow but i know an albino will emerge eventually
