@BalincaguinConservancy the trinomial is saved in this case because I have done so from a desktop computer. I can't seem to get it to work from my droid app. I have tried over and over to set the scientific name in the droid app but it just doesn't save that information.

For some reason the android app won't save the binomial/trinomial name and then save it.

Hi there:
I saw that you had an unidentified spider, and I did a little searching on the web. Could this be a picture of the same spider, located at the following link?

wikipedia didn't have a picture for that, but I though that this would help.

I looked at the specimen you posted, and then I did a google image search for images appearing on wikipedia.org (using fungus mushroom utah as my criteria for the search).

I'm no expert, but I think you may have stumbled across Psilocybe cyanescens. There is one image in the article that looks like the specimen you present, the rest of the images are not very similar.

Here is a link to the image: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/co...

I think a key to identifying what you discovered is determining its size.

sorry about that. I had attempted to input that, but I didn't get it in there right the fist time.

Yes, it could be the vertebra of a bovine creature, and given the location of the find, that is highly likely. Thanks for your insight.

I concur with flybeasley. How big is it, and is that a tuberous growth in the center? It looks like coral! Very interesting find.

I'm not an expert, but I think this is a black salamander (Aneides flavipunctatus). Where did you find this? If it was found in a forest or grassy area, I'd say that it's the black salamander. I'd also say that this is a baby.
