Pacific Bayberry

It was growing on Myrica californica, the Pacific Bayberry which is also called the Pacific Waxmyrtle. This is the same tree it commonly grows on in the Eureka area. I have never found it on chinquapin.

Growing on Chinquapin?

Is it reasonable to assume these were on chinquapin (Chrysolepis sp.)? That’s the primary host in California, but ever since I saw those ones growing on a myrtle in the Eureka area I’ve been watching for more unexpected hosts. For those keeping score, I think it was an old Morella californica, the California Wax Myrtle. I was definitely not a California bay (sometimes called Oregon Myrtle).
