2017 May 10--UCC Coverboard Check

1200-1315. Today I checked all 36 cover pieces for the UCC Cover Board Project. The general trend continues, with a few Western Skinks under a few boards in the grassy areas, and not much else in other areas. The skinks were all small and very quick, and I didn't bother trying to catch any today for photographs. One skink was tailless, therefore lacking blue, which made it look much different than the others initially as it darted here and there. All data can be viewed in this Google Sheet. I did photograph a couple standard native mollusks, and a few now-blooming flowers. On my way driving from the college a spotted a Wild Turkey, so documented it for posterity. :-)

I wondered if this might be something besides C. tolmiei because if the rounder, less-pointed petals, the relatively short bracts, and the lack of much branching, but the color of the hairs above tbe nectar gland and the red stripes below the nectar gland look most like tolmiei and don't look like anything else. Any thoughts? Normal variation for tolmiei?

This species is dioecious, having staminate and pistillate flowers on separate plants. This one appears to have pistillate (female) flowers.
