Basionym Morchella disparilis Loizides & P.-A. Moreau, Mycol. Progress, 15: 8 (2016).
Diagnosis Late-appearing, small- to medium-sized morel, characterised by a conical pileus with olivaceous tinges, distant, flexuous-anastomosed primary ridges with rudimentary interconnecting ridges, and a distinctly deep, angular sinus. Stipe often elongated at maturity. Spores < 27 μm long (Me = 24.1), faintly creased in cotton blue. Paraphyses slender, often mucronate-papillate, mostly 1–2 septate at the base. Acroparaphyses with capitate/subcapitate elements. Stipe terminal elements poorly developed, mostly undifferentiated. In Mediterranean maquis, usually associated with Arbutus andrachne or Cupressus sempervirens.
