How To Identify Morels Mushrooms
The two most important features to examine when trying to identify a morel mushroom are the cap shape and whether the interior is hollow.
Morels have a very distinct cap. Fairly uniform, they appear ridged and pitted inwards. See the picture to the right for a close up of a morel cap.
On most morels the cap will be attached to the stem, not hanging free as with Amanitas and many other mushrooms.
There are species known as “half-free morels”, where only the bottom of the cap hangs freely from the stem. These can be harder to identify so discard if you have any doubts.
After you’ve examined the cap the next important identification step is to slice the mushroom lengthwise. A true morel will be hollow inside from the tip of the cap to the bottom of the stem.
