False Morel

Tok, AK (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: I believe this is a false morel, of the family Helvellaceae and if so, this grotesque mushroom is deadly poisonous if eaten raw, and sometimes when cooked. Reportedly people have become ill simply from inhaling the vapors while simmering these mushrooms. This is the first I have ever seen.

Yikes, it's a wonder anyone would even think of eating something that looks like that!

About katy99780


I've lived in Alaska since 1969. I love this wild land. The extremes of the far north shape and affect every living thing. Extremes of weather, elevation, daylight hours, isolation, flora and fauna, nothing in Nature is insignificant.I have a Davis Vantage Pro weather station, uploading to Wunderground, (Turks on the Tundra) the National Weather Service, the Citizen Weather Observation Program and MADIS (Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System).
