Pointy morel


From photo collection MST Mushroom Model Collection

Edible. This morel differs from the common morel, morchella esculenta, in that it has a rounded, elongated black/brownish cap 2 to 5 cm high; which has flat fleshy pleats which run lengthwise, and pleat-like vertical folds which surround deep elongated fields. In appearance this morel can have the following variations: a) with a strongly pointed light coloured cap, b) with a round and blackish coloured cap, the rim of which stands away from the stem. The pointed morel grows in domestic gardens and in meadows in the spring. It is much rarer in the fall.
