Species not currently on clubs life list:

Sphaerotheca phytoptophila – the powdery mildew fungus associated with hackberry witches broom (John pointed this out and Cara got good pictures)
Exidia nigricans (Warlock butter) also known as [icon style=”camera”] Exidia glandulosa (Beech jelly roll). This species is likely to undergo a name change to an older species name some time in the future. It could be Exidia nigricans but E. nigricans looks to be misapplied to another species at the moment.
Resurpinatus sp.
Antrodia sp.
Armillaria sp. Shoe string mycellium
Mollisia sp.

Parmotrema hypotropum (Lichen)
Parmelia sulcata – (hammered) shield lichen (found growing on a branch near the picnic table)
Flavoparmelia caperata – common greenshield lichen (was growing everywhere, I don’t think anyone got a picture)
Crespoa crozalsiana – a lichen I photographed on an oak tree along the trail
Phaeophyscia rubropulcra – orange-cored shadow lichen (Cara photographed it on the stone wall)
Phaeophyscia pusilloides – pom-pom shadow lichen (I photographed this one growing on sandstone…tentative ID because it is typically found on bark according to my field guide but there are pics on iNat of it growing on stone)
