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...
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.
I knew this from Ron's pic. Thanks, Ron!
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!
