It seems wonderfully ironic that you gather morels in a Target bag!
Dave Bonta: Accidental irony, I assure you - it was simply the top bag in the drawer. (What did I buy from Target? Oh yes, a second pair of long johns.) But once I peeked in the bag, I knew I had to take a picture. Also, I lugged my camera to the collection site only to discover that the batteries were dead, so this was my only photo option.
Oh, I'm jealous!
Dave Bonta: Well, it turns out that morels are much more common around here than I'd thought. They're just good at hiding in plain sight.
Is it possible these could turn up in a backyard? I found a similar mushroom in our yard the other day.

Do you know the name of it?
Dave Bonta: Gina - yes, it's possible. Go down to Webster's and pick up a copy of new guide the Mushrooms of Pennsylvania by Bill Russell, or get the Bellefonte library to order it. It should answer your questions.
