There’s no way I would pick those thinking they were a Morrell. Atleast over here on the east side they look nothing like that.
Thinking the same.
I'd never mistake that.
Looks like a pile...........  You know. :chuckle: :chuckle:

Check out the link in my earlier post. Just based on your photos I would say Gyromitra esculenta but I can't be 100% only looking at photos.

I personally would not eat them.  :bdid:
Common stock, we work around the clock.
We shove the poles in the holes.

It’s not right vs left, they’re both fed from the same trough. It’s a distraction…It’s have vs have nots and in that scope, everyone here is a have not…
It’s only ever been about class war… Top 1% vs everyone else… Tank the two party system and get real, meaningful change…Whoops, just spilt my beer….

Looks like Gyromitra esculenta…
Not good…
Correct. I know people who eat them. You can eat them many times with no ill effect. And then, wham! cold sweats, kidney and liver problems, tachycardia. Fun stuff.

This is verpa bohemica. Edible and as stated above, don't eat a lot of them, especially the first time of the season. They're commonly called thimble caps because the cap sits on the stem like a thimble on a finger. The stem can be the source of digestive distress. When you harvest them, the stem breaks cleanly. Leave less than an inch under the cap. The stem isn't hollow and is unlike a true morel (morchella delisiosa, esculenta, etc.) in this way. With a true morel, the cap and stem are connected and hollow.

Has anyone been finding any verpas or morels?  I'm starting to get excited about getting out and looking for some.

We are done with the Verpas in the low elevation in Marysville. Been done for a week or so where we were picking.
