I found this little slug on top of a large Milkcap (Laccaria) species of mushrooms. I believe the genus name, Philomycus, means something like the "lover of mushrooms." Yellow body slime. This a type of mantle slug. One thing mantle slugs have in common is the production of "love darts", which are calcium based, harpoon-like structures that mantle slugs shoot into other slugs prior to copulation. Recent research seems to suggest that the love dart alters the sperm collection mechanism in the recipient of the love dart, ie the slug being shot. The mucus on the love dart contains an allohormone that's transferred into the recipient's hemolymph when the dart is inserted. This hormone alters the recipient's reproductive system. This increases the chances of paternity for the slug who shot the dart.

Possibly P. togatus:

Description

On the bank of the Hudson River.

Eelgrass is a flowering, aquatic plant that can reproduce both sexually via pollen or asexually/clonally via rhizomes. Underwater meadows of Eelgrass provide important habitat for many aquatic organisms. Many species of fish, crustaceans, mollusks, sea turtles etc., use Eelgrass meadows as either spawning, nursery or foraging grounds. It also provides an important refuge for many species.

A long list of organisms dependent on Eelgrass was detailed in the NYS Taskforce report:

https://dos.ny.gov/system/files/documents/2020/04/nys-seagrass-task-force-report.pdf

Eelgrass also serves the important function of increasing the oxygen levels in the water column. Eelgrass is dependent on ample light in order to photosynthesize and produce oxygen. Thus, water quality is one of the biggest threats to the survival of Eelgrass. Not only does Eelgrass increase the amount of oxygen in the water, it also reduces excess nutrients, e.g., nitrogen and phosphorus, which if not kept in check, can lead to things like algal blooms. Eelgrass also provides an important food source for many animals, including seafowl, such as the Atlantic brant.

The Minnesota site has a great explanation for how to tell them apart, which I'll summarize below.

https://www.minnesotawildflowers.info/shrub/virginia-creeper
https://www.minnesotawildflowers.info/shrub/woodbine

a) P. quinquefolia has tendrils with suction cups that it uses to climb trees, walls etc.
Note that young P. quinquefolia tendrils start out without suction cups.
b) P. inserta lacks these suction cups.

a) P. quinquefolia has aerial roots, similar to Poison ivy.
b) P. inserta lacks aerial roots

a) P. quinquefolia stems and leaf petioles are hairy
b) P. inserta stems and leaf petioles are glabrous

a) P. quinquefolia tendrils can have up to 10 short branches. Each branch is only about 1.5 inches long.
b) P. iserta usually has 2 or 3 branches only, but the branches are longer, 1.5 - 6 inches long.

Developing berries. They will turn a cream white color soon, and the leaves will turn to beautiful red hues. Poison ivy is a very important plant for many ecosystems. Bees visit the Poison ivy flowers for nectar and help to cross pollinate the plants. Many birds, including woodpeckers, cardinals, and crows eat poison ivy berries. They are an important fall and winter food for birds and mammals. The root systems of poison ivy help to anchor sandy dunes.

Underside of leaves is pubescent. Stems are pubescent. The scarlet flowers look like Cranes with long necks.
