Observation 92778: Hericium Pers.
When: 2012-04-12
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I thought this was a slime mold until Curecat cut it open. Looks like it was stunted by a few days of low humidity and freezing temps shortly after it sprouted.

I probably would have just torn it open with my fingers, or used the worn out blade from my decades old multitool. I did feel a bit nervous walking in front of you after you whipped out that knife though. Lol.

Oh good..
I bought a handful of box cutters, so I have no more excuses for such jagged cross sections.
