Coast Live Oak Quercus agrifolia

Description

This coast-live oak I thought interesting because of how it grew. The trunk is very straight and opens up to a canopy that is just above the tips of the french broom. This spot has been dominated by french broom for many years. It is interesting to me to see the french broom succeeding.

I don't know why the stupiz app deleted my description for these. But This was one of those inedible coral mushroom that have a murky yellow color, and a hint of green on it. I cooked it with a bit of oil and salt at the time I didn't know much about them, and omg it was so bitter the moment it touched my taste buds. I spited it out of course.

I presume this is the same as the living one, but notice the fewer whorls and less obvious sculpture.

Place

(Somewhere...)

Description

This is one of those situations where barcoding would be really useful. As far as I can tell based on the checklists, this is either Helminthoglypta diabloensis, known from a wide swath of montane regions in the East Bay, or H. nickliniana ssp. bridgesii, known from a small region around San Pablo and North Berkeley. Pilsbry describes them both as having 6.5 whorls, both have this kind of sculpture with bumps on the striations, and they seem like they should be the same size (though H. diabloensis might have a slightly more depressed spire), so really all I have to go on is very, very fine scale geography. I bet they're the same species.

Found under a log with the two dead shells that follow on Merritt College campus, on the edge of a stand of coyote bush and a marginally disturbed field. Surrounding area is largely housing, the college buildings, but also oak woodland and chaparral.
