Huge fungus, at least 15-18" in diameter. Growing under bay, oak, and madrone trees.
Curled up in its defensive posture... I'm guessing a mountain biker scared it since we found it in the middle of the trail looking like this.
Either Taricha granulosa or Taricha torosa.
Mutant P. brevinspinus... 6 rays instead of 5!
