Basking on the trail. I nearly decapitated it with my bike wheel. Slithered away as i photographed it. Not sure what species, this is just a guess.

Peckhamia sp. male jumping spider (Salticidae), Stulsaft Park, Redwood City, San Mateo County, California - 4 March 2015. I beat this ant-mimic jumping spider from an oak shrub. Collected live, chilled, photographed and later preserved as a specimen in order to determine species.

Description

Complex chambered interior, irregular dark gray cap, and ridged stem with holes. In Mushrooms Demystified, this keys to Helvella lacunosa. Recent sources state that the oak-associated member of this species complex is Helvella dryophila, which has a dark pileus and light stipe when young (http://www.mycologia.org/content/105/5/1275.short).

Photographs show the fruiting body, whole and cut (transverse and longitudinal) to show chambered interior of stem.
