Used references: Rosanne Healy who studies mitotic spore mats wrote after seeing pictures of my 2 observations, “All of the bright pink spore mats I have sequenced are produced by species in a clade that includes Pachyphlodes thysellii. Pachyphlodes virescens also belongs to this clade. Both species were described from the West Coast. P. thysellii seems to have a world-wide (Northern Hemisphere, temperate) distribution, but may be part of a species complex.”

This looks a lot like observation 120258 which was found in Big Basin during the NAMA foray.

It’s so pretty!

You could have gotten some sort of ID from looking at it under the microscope.
