Observation 221410: Fuligo septica (L.) F.H. Wigg.
When: 2015-10-31
(38.5796° -123.332° 66m)
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I found this white-to-cream-colored solid, slightly spongy, crumbly matter in the tan-oak/Doug-fir leaf litter. I thought the texture resembled the pericarp of Calvatia booniana. Any ideas?


Unknown fungus

We found this specimen at a completely different point along the same trail. If [MO user] darv thinks Fuglio septica, I can at least confirm its presence at Salt Point.

We did find Fuligo septica on a tree along a different part of the same trail. I’m posting a photo here with a caveat that it was from a different collection point.
