This deep water sea star was found in the gut of a rockfish! Observation by Eric Austin Yee, who was cleaning a boat belonging to J&M Sportfishing. This species is found 150-1000’ deep according to Smithsonian echinoderm researcher Chris Mah, who stayed up late helping me with this ID. 🙏 Unfortunately the sea star was thrown overboard in 100’ water after its photo op.

Still need to work this lichen out. At first I thought it was Hypogymnia, but the thallus isn't really hollow. Abundant soredia on the lower surface of the tips.

K, definitely stumped here. Soredia on the lower surface of the tips might suggest something like Physcia or Heterodermia, but I'm not seeing great matches in either of those genera. Clearly on bark. pale lower surface, rolled thallus lobes, no apparent rhizines or cilia.

Extremely small 1mm squamules growing on soil that was probably mostly degraded "baked" volcanic rock. Seems like they were not fully attached to the substrate so I'm going with Placidium over Acarospora schleicheri, and leaning toward P. squamulosum, though I don't think there's enough info here to go through Brodo's Placidium key.

Octoglena sierra (as is the case with many hirudisomatids, but not all) also has a broad telson.

An exceedingly rarely reported and very exciting find!!! I do not see what else these beautiful myxos could be except Diderma rufostriatum, which have been recorded fewer than 30 times worldwide to date -- only in three countries in Western Europe and a single observation in western Australia (per GBIF). Microscopy will be done to confirm, but the descriptions in the literature are very clear and these fit the description perfectly as far as I can tell. And, to make this all the more amazing, these were all found in dry leaf litter and on tiny twigs in my very own front yard by my friend @graysquirrel !
