Big Red Mushrooms

Big Red False Morel, Gyromitra caroliniana

Tonight we found 5 Big Red mushrooms in the South-40 Woods. One of them was 8-inches across. The new MDC book “Missouri Wild Mushrooms” describes them as “Reddish-brown, convoluted, brain-like cap with whitish stalk stuffed with cottony tissue.” It is described as poisonous and potentially deadly.
