Do this. Cut the stalk from the cap, then cut the stalk lengthwise. It should be completely hollow. In other words, it won't have a cotton-like, or fibrous thread-like substance inside.
BDoc said:The verpas look like a smooth thimbel size brown fungi on the white stem. Just found my first one ever on Sunday. Wish I took a picture. I forget the name but I also found the look a like fungi that is solid and about the size of a baseball. The outside look about exactly like a morel but its not a morel. Plenty of good sites out there to help identify these none edible morel look a likes. I will ask my buddy what site he uses and try to get a link up.
