When I lived in McKinleyville, this was a common species in the area. One that I have known for about 30 years and probably learned from Dr. Largent. It has a world wide distribution and can be found in many books. The Europeans spell it with an ‘a’ as Humaria hemisphaerica, but the Americans (Smith, Tylutki, Bessette, Arora) spell it as shown here.
