When: 2008-03-21

Collection location: Menlo Park, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

Specimen available

Stopped by a A. velosa spot on the way home from work, on a Friday afternoon. There were plenty of them out there. The top of the ground was dry and hard, but that wasn’t stoppin’ ’em. Some places you could find them by a patch of dry dirt pushed up and off to the side, by the emerging cap.
