of the new sequence section. great work, Joe!
Definitely Geopora cooperi, likely G. cooperi f. cooperi. I have found it at the Clackamah Horse Corrals too.

y009, identified as Geopora cooperi MO 205834
This had several GenBank matches to G. cooperi. A phylogenetic tree made with all Geopora cooperi sequences showed y009 on a branch with 2 G. cooperi f. cooperi (from Pakistan and Sweden). So this looks like it may be f. Cooperi. There is a lot of variation in the 15 Geopora cooperi ITS sequences in GenBank, so there may be some misidentifications, or the species may be in need of splitting. The rpb2 sequence from y009 was practically identical to the one available rpb2 sequence for G. cooperi.
