There are definitely Morels and false Morels. I find them all the time (in Morel hunting terms). The most common edible that I find (in northern NM) is the King Bolete. Not my favorite but many people love them...

Check out this report site: http://www.morelmushroomhunting.net/...rch_report.cfm and enter 'New Mexico' in the search box.

Mushrooms Demystified is not specific to New Mexico (or the Southwest for that matter) but every budding mushroom enthusiast should have it.

Found this New Mexico Mycological Society

It is very interesting. Wonder if there are any members in Otero Co, or close by.

Thanks, I had been told that the answer was no. Glad you can find them.

Great news! I wasn't a mushroom hunter all the years I've lived in NM but became so up here in Alaska. Kings are a favorite of ours in our woods up here. we even dry them for spaghetti sauce in winter. I look forward to picking kings when we get back home down there. But hey- I would rather have morels or oyster mushrooms.

One book it mentions, of which I know nothing, is 'Mushrooms Demystified.'

This seems a good year for mushrooms in Colorado, possibly areas of New Mexico as well?
Thanks for the listings, I will be able to look them up when i get the books, they are on the way!
