As if we haven't figured it out by now, it's a stinkhorn! What kills me is when someone misidentifies a shroom and then won't listen to anyone else or consider the evidence. Semilibera do NOT grow from cups, nor do they smell "nutty", at least not in my experience. And that cap does not look "free".

I've found semilibera ("half free"), Verpa (both bohemica and conica), Gyromitra, and morels like esculenta and crassipes. If you're halfway observant, they all look different! But, there are further tests to employ to make sure of what you have. And like others have said, if there's any doubt in your mind do not eat it!

I've found northern tooth growing at the base of oaks when the Audubon guide tells you they grow high up on maples! Yet, I've never mistaken them for hens! I find tons of boletes every year, but that's a genus I'm really leery of. Never had enough confidence in my finds to actually try and eat any. I'm on a mission to try and find the King Bolete, Boletus edulis! I don't know if I'll ever succeed, but I always have the dried ones in cellophane from eastern Europe and Russia that I can get at the local Polish deli!

I think its a stink horn if its hollow when you break stem its a moral.
Stinkhorns have hollow stipes (stems) just like a morel, so don't let that fool you. Stinkhorn is what is pictured to start this thread, and they are NOT edible. Happy and safe hunting/eating!

I have no problem people voicing their opinions, just like my rebutal. I just hope my comments are read to open people up to doing better research before eating any shrooms. Everybody knows all Mushrooms are edible ONCE!
I think what your trying to say is ALL mushrooms are edible but some only ONCE....just saying.

I think it is a morel, but they grow out of a ball..... hollow center. Smells great. Nutty. Side of my yard.... the ball is pictured and the "cup" left after picking..... please help identify!!! Thanks! Kev
it looks like a species of "Morchella" or True Morel.
they are a genus of EDIBLE Sac fungi...
they are closely related to the "pezizales" order
