Descripción

A set of around 10 shallow digs 3-5 cm deep tipped me off. Raking back the layer of Redwood needles another 2-5 cm (total depth probably something like 4-8 cm) turned up a single fruitbody situated amongst a lot of branched white rhizomorphs (see photos). Soil and humus had a strong vegetal odor – not great but not particularly unpleasant.
Peridium blushed rosy and royal purple!
Cross-sectioned fruitbody shows many olive-colored locules (likely paler because the fruitbody is small and immature).

Apparently has not been recorded in Santa Cruz County since the 80s, and only found a few times anywhere in recent decades.

I counted about thirty fruitbodies of this species at this spot today, many thanks to Carol Selter for the tip on where to find them!

Spores inamyloid, smooth, tapered-ellipsoid to pip-shaped. Basidia clamped at base. Some basidia 2-spored. Pileipellis a cutis of inflated, minutely incrusted hyphae with small clamps; occasionally with small, diverticulae or "anastomosing with "H" connections"/fusions between hyphae.

Spores:
L x W= 9 x 5 µm Q= 1.8
L x W=8 x 6 µm Q= 1.3
L x W=9.5 x 6 µm Q= 1.6
L x W= 9 x 5.5 µm Q= 1.6
L x W= 8 x 5.5 µm Q= 1.5
L x W= 11 x 7 µm Q= 1.6

Average:
L x W: 9.1 x 5.8 Q = 1.6

I am not sure what the insect on it is, but it seems to be depositing something inside the already existing gall.

I showed the California Young Birders group a series of Calochortus invenustus and kennedyi yesterday and we then found this beauty on the trail ahead. A hybrid between Calochortus invenustus and kennedyi.

The colouration is perfectly intermediate and there is only a faint trace of a green stripe on the underside (strong in most invenustus, absent in kennedyi).

Presumably an escaped pet. Now expired. Assuming quills bleached... Unless this is some sort of Tenrec thing. Carcass collected for the Bone Hags. Perhaps they can tell us for sure.
