  1. Found these towards the bottom of what I believe is a pignut hickory.

    Yup! Found some of those last year for the first time. Amazing what you see when you keep your eyes open! I've been keeping mine open, but unless we get some rain, I may not see much.

    I also found it interesting that the Audubon guide says that Northern Tooth "grows high up on maples". I found mine low on an oak, and you found yours on a hickory.

    I noticed that to! I was a little confused but I guess anything it possible. It pretty much states only grows high on maples. I have noticed some descriptions are a little hard to follow in that book but then again I had reading problems when I was younger. Idk anyone else find descriptions hard to follow??

    I think that sometimes you have to take issue with the written opinions. Especially when you see things with your own eyes that are different!

    It's like saying morels "only" grow around dying elms or apple trees. Well, they do grow there, but that's not the only place. I like Michael Kuo's comment. "Mushrooms will grow wherever they want to!" He's found morels growing at the bases of big red oaks. I found my best flush this past Spring around a big Sycamore. There were old apple trees in the area, and there were a few morels around them. But, the major flush was around that sycamore tree. Seems like the mycelium is spreading out.

    I've also found them around big, old cottonwoods.
