Morchella exuberans is a species of fungus in the family Morchellaceae (Ascomycota). It was described as new to science in a 2012 study by Clowez[1][2] and corresponds to phylogenetic lineage Mel-9.[3] Morchella capitata, described by Kuo and colleagues later in the same year, is a synonym of this taxon.[4]

Morchella exuberans is a fire-associated morel, growing the first or second spring following a forest fire. It has so far been reported from North America,[4] Turkey,[5] Sweden,[5] China[6] and Cyprus.[7] Among some of the striking features of this species, are the capitate acroparaphyses on the sterile ridges of its cap, and the chambered stem.[4]
