Morels Found: 0
False Morels: 0
Other Mushrooms: Please help with ID
General Information: Found these sliver dollar sized shrooms on a hardwood stump in sunny area in Northern KY. VERY velvety caps. Obvious but rudimentary stem. Much like Bondarzewia montana but wring geography and season. Crepidotus or Lentinellus maybe? Doesn't seem to match either fully. Any help is much appreciated. And thanks again for a great foray this past April!
Chris' Comments: Lentinellus species, I have never eaten them

General Location: East of Chinook Pass, Hwy 410
International/State: None_given
Morels Found: 30+
False Morels: 2
Other Mushrooms: 2 Thimble Caps, a few other small brown 'shrooms
General Information: Went hunting on 1 June. Found mostly Blacks and a couple of greys. All pretty fresh with minimal infestation of larvae, ranging from 4 - 6 inches in length. Found several right next to an intermittent stream. The Thimble caps were in a boggy area near another small stream. Especially since finding the Thimble Caps, we think it's still early in the season at the 4000' level. Would help if there were some more rain, but that isn't likely for a week or so.

False Morels: none
Other Mushrooms: Spring Kings!
General Information: Found 5/25. Agree with others that lower elevations generally seem dry. Late season snow mostly at high altitude, then warm, not very rainy late spring seems to really have stunted them down low, and it's sill a bit too cool at higher elevations. Maybe those will really go off in a couple of weeks. The morels we found, -and the spring kings - were at an are I wouldn't normally visit until well into June. We were desperate. Several pounds of spring kings making up somewhat for the very disappointing morel results to date.
