Observation 32918: Stemonitis Gled.

When: 2010-01-14

Collection location: Point Reyes National Seashore, Marin Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Eric Geller (sagacious)

No specimen available

Found under young Bishop pine.

The subject of this observation bears some resemblance to the eggs of introduced Helix aspersa. The large quantity of spore cases and the presence of connecting milky-white plasmodium trails warranted a further look.

S. splendens is my best attempt at ID of this observation, and was based on macroscopic visual characters.
