    New to mushroom hunting found several of these last year. Was a little too late but wasn't sure if they were actually morels.

    These ARE NOT morels, do not eat those, they could make you very sick! I've hunted these for 25 years

    I dunno, those look like morels to me. But obviously way too far gone to be edible.

    If it looks like a morel and is completely hollow inside, it's a true morel.

    Looks like some half free morels that are decaying to me.

    The stems were hollow.
