The other day I was working in my back yard, when I found what appeared to be morels growing up along my fenceline. I picked them, for later investigation. Unfortunately, I left them outside overnight, and varmints took off with them before I could get a positive identity. The mushroom had the same type of honeycomb cap that a morel does, but I am wondering if there was anything else that it could have been. The cap seemed to be solidly attached to the stem, so I don't think it was a verpa thimble cap mushroom. Should I keep an eye on that part of my fenceline to see if any more of that variety might come up in the future?

Yes, I would. They don't necessarily come back as reliably as a mycorrhizal mushroom on a giant log, but it's fairly likely.
