The Bay River

John and I walked a stretch of the Bay River today and then explored a bit more of the tetrad NG25R. We found 197 taxa – with a couple of specimens still to be studied.

Highlights included Cystopteris fragilis (Brittle Bladder-fern) – new to NG25, Equisetum pratense (Shady Horsetail) and the locally uncommon Veronica beccabunga (Brooklime).

There was also this honey fungus on Picea sitchensis (Sitka Spruce):

Honey fungus

Rhizomorphs or Mycelial cords. Probably Armillaria ostoyae.
