Thanks! These always strike me as very "alien".

Full disclosure: it could easily be Clavariadelphus pistillaris. However, I see oak leaves in the litter and since C. americanus is mycorrizal with oak I went with that one.

Really hard to say without a better look - could possibly be a queen snake, especially so close to the creek.

Poor little guy, he may have died over the winter. You can tell he's a male by the curve of his plastron (lower shell). The undersides of males are concave to facilitate mating.

Thanks! Full disclosure: I didn't even notice the spider until I was reviewing these photos later - I was just shooting the molts!

Thanks Heather! That was just the lead I needed - based on recorded sightings it is almost certainly skunk vine. It seems sewer vine is currently restricted to Miami-Dade and Broward counties.

Thanks! I'm new to mushrooming and it's been really fun finding and trying to ID all these colorful beauties!
