Description

Not sure if this a fungus or a myxomycete, but it resembles a few images I've found of Reticularia lycoperdon. It seemed to be exuding from this stump of a dead lodgepole pine tree (Pinus contorta murrayana), but perhaps was only on the surface. Soft interior and semi-resilient to the touch, but with a thin, skin-like outer surface. Bright white. Near the footbridge over the Tuolumne River, near Parsons Memorial Lodge, Tuolumne Meadows, Yosemite National Park, CA, elev. 8580 ft.

Biennial Cinquefoil Potentilla biennis

Observer

Date

July 16, 2018 09:05 AM PDT

Description

Some P. biennis in this region have been suggested as P. norvegica. That seems unlikely, based on the distribution of herbarium collections. In this plant, stems near base are densely glandular-hairy (would be sparsely hairy in P. norvegica); seeds are ~0.6–0.7 mm (would be ±1 mm in P. norvegica); leaflets are less elongated than in typical P. norvegica. Edge of road with spring-fed runoff along Cottonwood Canyon Road, Bodie Hills, Mono County, CA, elev. 7900 ft.
