I have so many questions about this!!!(I’m sure I’m not the only one)
Is this the only patch in the area?
Did someone purposefully cultivate this patch? (Wouldn’t be the 1st in the valley)
If not, is it possible these woodchips were brought from SF containing spores?
If not that either, does that mean they’re there naturally?
If they are there naturally, does that mean they could be all over the central valley naturally as well?

The limits are being challenged! haha

Oh nice

The Escondido find was close to the coast, this is the only inland find. Also the Escondido location was a transplant from Oregon.

This observation expands the known eastern range of this species in California by about 50 miles.
