False Morels

Found a bunch of false morels today. Would that be a good area for others? White, black etc. or is everything about done when they pop?

Re: False Morels

By false morels, do you mean beefsteaks or verpas?
My experience with verpas is that they grow near Black Ash trees, and come up before the morels do.
Reading up on Verpa bohemica I see that it can also be found in apple orchards, so it appears it grows in the same areas where you find Morchella esculenta.
I've found beefsteaks where I've never found morels. I've found morels and beefsteaks in the same area, and have some areas where I've found morels for years and have never found beefsteaks.
In the photo section, in morels and false morel photos, I posted photos of Verpas. In the photo I've posted here, you can see two verpas (a third one is hiding somewhere in the ramps) growing within a few feet of a Black Ash tree. Look directly left of the tree for one, and straight down from the left side of the trunk for the other.
