Morchella ultima

sp. nov. Fischer and Reehil

Type specimen of Morchella ultima, sp. nov., photographed with the taxon's authors, David Fischer and Roy Reehil.

Description: very similar in all respects to M. esculenta Fries (particularly the "M. crassipes" form) but all linear dimensions multiplied by an approximate factor of fifteen.
Ecology/Type Locale: Yeah, right---like we're really gonna' tell you that!
