Description

Found on the side of a trail in a transition area between a mostly dense Doug fir/oak woodland and more sparse oak woodland. The fungus was found on a stump and was about 3 inches long. It hadn't rained in the area (California drought) for a while so the fungus was dry.

Description

C. mildei or C. inclusum, juvenile female.

They probably account for more spider bites than any other spider and their bites are sometimes misdiagnosed as brown recluse bites.

I'm not all sure about this one. There are many stiff upright hairs on a rotting tree branch. When they are disturbed, a white mist of spores is released. Close up, the spores are 9 x 3 µm. There is little evidence of an original thallus.
