The season is in full swing and I just wanted to put some info out there regarding the half-free morels (dog peckers). Please make sure you ID these mushrooms carefully. I've been reading mushroom boards and looking at the pictures of some of the "half-frees" people are harvesting, and I'm pretty sure some are verpa bohemica and NOT a morel. Many people can eat these verpas without affect, then when the toxin builds up in their system, one more mushroom pushes them over the edge. It may take years for some people. This is a very helpful link: http://www.mushroomexpert.com/morchellaceae.html Scroll down on the page a little and look on the right side. Check out the verpa bohemica and half-free morel and be sure to note the differences. Here are some pics from the above site. Can you tell the difference? (Hint for the cheaters: hold your mouse pointer over the picture). Good luck and be safe!
