Not sure I've seen this species yet round the Lake. Near the Mussel basket reintroduction. Northeast Shore. Hanging out over water.
I need a 12-step Program to stop photographing this...
Possibly R. peltata because the "PD test was + orange."
Planning to deposit specimen at the UC Berkeley Herbarium.
This was growing in debris on the forest floor of a mixed pine and hardwood forest.
Lobster mushroom - a mold that covers certain species of Russula and Lactarius mushrooms. It is a “highly prized edible.”
Evernia prunastri, abundant but dry as a bone in summer on another record drought year. Two distinct colors could still be made out visually, though they look a bit vague in this photo.
I did not notice the red things until I took this photo off of my camera. Fits the description of Lecidea tessellata.
Several in the area
This piece is about 6 cm across.
Apparently microscopic examination is required to distinguish between Chlorociboria aeruginascens & C. aeruginosa.
