Ptychoverpa bohemica

Ptychoverpa_bohemica looks so much like a yellow morel that it is called the early false morel. Note the cylindrical stem, which is stuffed with cottony mycelia, and the wrinkled cap that does not join the stem but hangs down over it. This fungus grows in the same riparian habitat as yellow morels, and can be confused with them.
