Observation 138393: Insecta

When: 2013-07-02

Collection location: Sebastopol, Sonoma Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: George Riner (mycogeo)

No specimen available

Light green color. Growing on an old clothespin. Crushing one of the pods to see in scope, it is hard-cased. Inside is a ‘goo’ that is the same color as the exterior.

Looking at the ‘goo’ in the scope at low-magnification, there are structures in it. Possibly spores – maybe. Sorry for lack of photo of scope image, I still don’t have a system worked out.
