Giant pacific slamander
coastal, found during creek restoration work day under the willow creek bridge on Bridgeway.
Healthy looking fast moving adult. No external gills.
My last iNat before Puerto Vallarta! Will be nice to see butterflies I've been I.d.ing for everyone else. Seems appropriate to end with this Mexican jungle boy flying all over San Francisco
I think I was asking someone recently if there were acorn woodpeckers in ggp. Apparently I've been walking right by them for months.
On branch of Monterey Cypress
Lots of soredia, some ends of lobes are "frayed" with finger-like extensions (? Isidia ?)
Same color on both sides, under Monterey cypress, first grove off of sand entrance
Soredia on margins, including those that split (?)
Seen at Stow Lake
On a gum tree in the panhandle. Later saw another one nice one on a gum in Golden Gate Park near 9th and MLK Dr.
