P. adscendens continues to fool me…

The hairs on the upper surface of P. tenellula are actually hairs, not cilia. This is “just” yet another bewildering form of P. adscendens. Considering it is one of the most abundant species in southern California, you’d think I’d know how to recognize it by now…
