SPRING MUSHROOMS

Peziza badio-confusa1910
Morchella esculenta 0052

I am frequently asked to produce a list of mushrooms that can be found in the spring in our area of the northeast. The following checklist were compiled from the COMA spring (April through May) walk collections from 2003 to 2013 (To view accompanying photos see www.pbase.com/comafungi). It is important to note that some fungi listed are left over from the previous year, particularly soft annual and hard perennial polypores and crusts, as well as old puffballs.
