Description

Drove up road N.F. 6024 to Barclay Lake Trail head, followed access road for maybe 3/4 of a mile, came to 2nd washout. Numerous clusters to be found appearing to grow out of soil but after investigating found clusters growing from decomposing wood, allover washout. Oysterlike but w/ more promenant stems, Clitopilus prunulus has decurrent gills and equal to tapering central or off center stems. It was one of first very cold days,after carrying back wet mushrooms I couldn't feel my hands, however when I got them in an inclosed space and after drying they are still stinky.

Description

for context, please see daily account for Index, WA on 5/12. this moss was much harder to identify, as it did not have as distinguishing features as the oregon beaked moss and i did not spend a lot of time studying it when i saw it. i ventured to guess that it was wavy-leaved cotton moss, because of the way it was transversely wavy, whitish-green and glossy, with little-branced stems. if anyone has another idea, i'd be happy to know!

for context, see daily account for Index, WA on 5/12. i looked at mosses in pojar and felt like oregon beaked moss came closest to describing this moss i saw growing at the base of a tree in the moist index forest. pojar says it is common in lowland rainforests, which would be appropriate for the wetness of this area, and is a yellow-green to orange-green, which is also confirmed by this picture. most distinct of all though is its branches, which resemble individual fern fronds.

for context, please see Daily Account for Index, WA on 5/12. this fern dominated the understory of the forest here. it is distinct from brackenfern by the way its fronds extend from the ground instead of from a single point/stem.
