Observation 8021: Fuligo septica (L.) F.H. Wigg.

When: 2008-06-20

Collection location: Howarth Park, Santa Rosa, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Debbie Drechsler (debdrex)

No specimen available

Notes:
When I found this I assumed it was Fuligo septica. Upon viewing the photos close-up I found it looked different than other Fuligos I’ve seen. When I looked at pictures online I couldn’t find one that looked like this either. Anyone have any ideas?
21 June: Went back to see if I could tell more after a day of sweltering heat. I’m now convinced it is Fuligo septica. Note the beige crust surrounding dried black spore mass (barely visible at bottom).
