I am always confused by articles that claim that gyromitra resemble morels. It makes me wonder how those people's eyes work. My first year hunting for morels, the first shrooms I found were gyromitra. I knew doggone well what they were, and knew they were NOT morels!

Which reminds me that,in my life, I have found exactly one real half free morel. And it crumbled to pieces the instant my fingertips touched it! What I find a lot of where I hunt is Verpa conica. They were out in force this season. After you see enough of them, you can tell just by looking. However, I'll usually cut one just to confirm the ID. I think verpa bohemica could be more easily mistaken for a half free, but I've never found one of them around here either.
