Has the weather been so screwy this year that morels are up in central KY in November? I have posted pictures on facebook of what I have found today. the link to the album is: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.4875197599108.199294.1272499769&type=1&l=2fae136df2

These do look similar to morels but they arent. Didnt your mushroom stink to high heaven? I believe you have the netted stinkhorn. Or some other variety of stinkhorn. Some are edible but i've never tried em. Glad to see something is fruiting out there tho! :)

A friend showed me some Late Oct.- Nov. morels these were reddish in color. I never had seen any like them that time of year we found about 24 the size of a small child's fist. I wouldn't eat them because I wasn't for sure if they were safe. And looked like a big gray morel but RED. And all were lopsided Any thoughts on these.. That was in central Illinois 20 some yrs. ago. I'm now living in Cave city Ky. looking forward to 2014 hunting season won't be long friends.

Those red morels sound like falses to me, but they normally pop up a few weeks ahead of morels in Spring and continue.

Ground temps as low as 47 but preferably 50 degrees will get them going. Here is a decent map I use along with the one on the home page of this site.
