When: 2013-07-22

Collection location: North Bend, Coos Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Laurel (algoressister)

No specimen available

This is a berry/seed from the Hemitomes congestum I found at Blue Bill Lake. I wanted to look at it under the microscope. I made the mistake of putting it in my shirt pocket. It got squashed when I put the ball thrower under my arm to take a picture. The nasty smell that ensued made me have to, eventually, take a shower. It smells like VERY sour beer. And it is a pretty juicy berry! So the juice/smell soaked through all my clothes. And I am amazed at how STRONG the smell was.
