I found this little 3-mm gnaphosid on a low stone fence at the vista point parking area. I took it home, chilled it, photographed it and preserved it as a specimen. This is an introduced species now known as Heser schmitzi - more photos of the specimen are here:

Manroot fruit.
Corelli lists M. fabacea at Edgewood.

The two choices we have in this area are M. fabacea and M. oregana.
Here's the key: http://ucjeps.berkeley.edu/cgi-bin/get_IJM.pl?key=8955

This fruit looks spherical, definitely unhooked. Also, in flower, the two are quite distinct. I have only seen M. fabaceae at Edgewood.

The board at the nature center seemed to call this a clay mariposa lily, but that isn't a choice here.

They have a poster describing a turkey tail fungus, which I hope this is as we also saw a wild turkey (with tail) that day
