E.e. eschscholtzii X xanthoptica.
On well-decayed hardwood. Fibrils on pileus reminiscent of Pholiota but much smaller.
Pillbug-esque insect with twelve dorsal plates. Stayed in this curled up (protective?) position the entire time while being photographed.
On subterranean soil, under a rock. Small, resupinate club-like fruiting structures.
Intergrade between E.e. eschscholtzii and E.e. xanthoptica. (Although it looks more like a E.e. oregonensis, to me.)
Found this tag on the beach -- I am wondering if anyone knows what animal it came off of? Says "Jumbo" size on the back, about 1.5" long, with a stout pin. A really big fish? Salmon? Great white shark? Harbor seals and sea otters nearby, and really close to Ano Nuevo so it could even be an elephant seal...?
(Yes I'm going to mail it in!)
About 1.5" long, under cobble over sand.
