Black-eyed Hermit Crab
Found relatively high on the beach. Was sitting partial out of the water on a rock.
Two female were heard and seen flying around the golf course from oak tree to oak tree.
Note the red-bordered light eye, broad white leading edge on much darker wings than other gulls. eBird checklist: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S13519381
vivid orange. some were growing out of wood-pecker'd holes.
purple jelly squiggles
pink pore surface. dark woody upper
Found growing in a trimmed tree planter in the soil off of just one measly twig.
Weather was and had been rainy around 50-55 degrees for the past few days.
I walk past this area all the time and the mushrooms only seemed to show on the most rainy of days.
Spore print was dark brown and gills were an electric yellow-green. Spores measured 5.2 x 4.55.
Tiny red young mushrooms that begin to have orange edges as they mature.
Very similar to H. repandum, but the difference is in the very distinct depression and or hole in the center off the cap.
I found A. gemmata in 2 different location. Both gemmatas were found growing singly at Evergreen State college. Both had a bulbous clavate stipe with annulus present. Both had some partial veil remnants on cap. Caps were pale yellow/tan to slightly olive. At first I thought they were A. phaloides, but further investigation resulted in determining they are A. gemmata.
Maroon little gelatinous finger like structures that release spores when when touched growing on a decaying stump.
Found several off these scattered around and under ferns at Evergreen State College.
Single edulis next to a tree. Other larger ones someone had already gotten to.
Single H. lacunosa growing out of pine duff. Infected with Hypomyces cervinigenus. Cap had turned from greyish tan when I picked it to salmon color by the time I got it to the lab. Very interesting.
Very uniquely colored russula. Orange to slightly salmon. Very viscid cap. Growing on a downed tree.
