Strong almond sent, growing at base if large palm. I've seen this fruit many times, but only 98% sure this is A. augustus and not one if the other almond smelling Agaricusushrooms
Clovers still confuse me, non-native ones doubly sow. This was a very small, mat-forming species growing in the middle of the trail.
Interesting find by Liam. This is my first time seeing this lichen despite quite a bit of time staring into shrubs in the Oakland/Berkeley Hills. We found two individuals, one on poison oak and the other on coyotebush (I think, though it wasn't very leafy so maybe not), so it's certainly not common at this location. There were no apothecia on either, and you can see what I think are the soredia on the second pic here.
Possibly in the genus Sphex. Sadly did not see them hauling away any katydids.
