Probably Arrhenia retiruga

This is probably Arrhenia retiruga, it could be Arrhenia lobata. But in general it seems that A. retiruga is smaller, and more random in appearance, and A. lobata should be larger and more robust with some structure, although still not quite gills. The real difference is that A. retiruga lacks clamps, and A. lobata has clamps. The stuff that looks like this, I’ve looked at from the mid-peninsula, and Darvin looked at from Pt. Reyes, and they lacked clamps. So, it kinda all points to more probably being Arrhenia retiruga.
