More about the image
The beautiful image on the mushroom illustration spectacles pouch is by the naturalist Léon Dufour, and is taken from his 1891 book, Atlas des champignons comestibles et vénéneux (atlas of edible and poisonous mushrooms).
In the book, the mushroom is labelled as Morchella conica, although we now know that at least four separate species were misidentified as such (Morchella deliciosa, Morchella purpurascens, Morchella tridentina, and Morchella vulgaris). I believe these are all types of edible Morrell mushroom, however I know almost nothing about mycology (the study of fungus), and since the book’s title indicates the presence of both edible and poisonous mushrooms, please do not rely on this illustration alone for safe identification.
