A Mob of Morels

Morchella elataOne of the highlights of yesterday’s Field Naturalists’ excursion was finding a patch of morels. These fungi are edible though no one was in a rush to try one. We found about 20 with one or two that had split open to spread their spores.

Morels are on the list to be recorded for the Fungimap Project, so the exact site and details were recorded to be sent off to be entered into the database.
