When: 2015-10-04

Collection location: Sunset View Cemetery, Contra Costa Co., California, USA [Click for map]

37.9086° -122.2851° 150m

Who: Tom Bruns (pogon)

Specimen available

Notes:
A large cluster was coming up next to a grave stone. No wood was obvious. Most of the collection was used in class as a quiz. A small bit was dried and saved.

I always expect our local material to be slightly different from European descriptions, but this fits very well.
