As near as I can tell,  here in northern Newton county, the morel season is just starting,  but there are many other fungi that spring up.  Among them are these really neat looking urnulas. I only found two immature morels,  but the forest floor is laden with these black, saprophytic  goblets.  These can also be parasitic on oak. 

 

And the first morel of the season 🤠

(For me)

After I posted this, I went to the main page and saw the Urnula...

 

Just an fyi the two morels I found were in Stony Run County park in Lake County, Indiana.  They were in a stand of shag bark hickory.  Who woulda thunk?

Welcome back! I need to get out hunting. Pheasantbacks should be available soon, too. Is that really a morel in the third picture? If it wasn't so early in the season I'd think it was a lobster mushroom.

Hi Bruce🤠👍 Yes, that was a morel. It certainly had me scratching my head a little, because it was flat to the ground,  but when i pinched it off the stem and fruiting body was hollow.
