Went back for close-ups of this...
on found on eldridge grade, the other on the start of tucker trail up from phoenix lake (where there tends to be a lot of them.)
I think these are fecal droppings from dogs... I was seeing the mold covered dropping near the beginning of the trail in to the park. I have numerous photos o them, illuminating their covering of 2-3 inch long "micro-stalks"
along trail above lagunitas drive - the trail cuts through an shaded area with may 25-50 plants.
identified by someone on sight - difficult to confirm from my shot.
tucker trail; along phoenix lake, lagunitas road. Not many blooming yet.
mid tucker trail; last one along Phoenix Lake east side.
the one in the duff was seen on the upper portion of the tucker trail.
sprouts from local tree nuts growing in pots
