Commonly Morchelles are known as "sponges" for the structures of their hat that, starting from a smooth stem, is made up of recesses and lobes with protruding ribs. The species are numerous, but usually they come together in two groups: "morchella esculenta" and "morchella conica". They are found in very different habitats like rivers, plains, wooded environments of various kinds. They are widespread especially in coastal areas, on sandy soils, in pine forests and vineyards, but also in mountainous areas where they grow in June and July, especially those conical.
