Not sure if the common intorduced species in shady woodlands is M. latifolia or M. sylvatica.
Heard many in wooded ravines with Coast Live Oak.
Widespread throughout grassland.
A smaller, daintier Equisetum than I usually encounter.
A large gall on stem of Quercus agrifolia. It felt hollow.
This flower looks just like one of those in the clusters I'm familiar with in Brodiaeas. I have never seen a single blossom like this so close to the ground.
