Possible Coprinus micaceus that had been washed by rain, but I'm not sure. It's a group of mushrooms I don't know very well.
About 4cm tall, observed in Oakland, CA, USA.
Once again I checked the wild ginger patches, and once again was mostly skunked for flowers, except for this one, which was just about to open.
A common greenhouse liverwort that grows all over Huckleberry, distinguished by its crescent-shaped gemma receptacle. A gemma is an asexually produced reproductive body.
Know what's harder to photograph than a liverwort? A hornwort. Nevertheless, this was my first time seeing them!
The hornworts I saw definitely looked a little different than the liverworts: smaller, darker, more flimsy. The liverwort here had these weird structures on the edges of its thalli. I'm assuming they're some kind of reprodcuctive structure...
