Morels

I think I saw two morels in our woods today. Are they still growing this time of year? One was almost black and the other was past its prime. I didn't pick the one but it looked like ones I have seen posted on here. Is there any other mushrooms that look like morels?

Re: Morels

Morels don't grow this time of year (early June at the latest). I would guess it was an old stinkhorn. When they get older the top of it can resemble a morel. They grow in the summer and the fall.

And No. Even the "falsies" do not resemble a true Morel. The only resemblance KINDA, is the Verpa comparing to a half-free Morel.

Re: Morels

Sqrlhntr, I assume you didn't see a mirage so google stinkhorn (images). There is quite a bit of variation when it comes to these but you should notice a few pics that look familiar. I've seen them in the summer and fall.
