Hygrocybe conica (blackening cap) | ©Ray Purser  (Annesley, Nottinghamshire, England)
Common names: Witch’s hat, Conical wax cap or Conical slimy cap (En); Higróforo cónico (Sp).
Hygrocybe conica (Hygrophoraceae) is relatively easy to identify because virtually all parts of the mushroom bruise and discolor strongly black. In fact, one sometimes finds older specimens that have discolored so much that they appear almost completely black. Another distinctive feature is the sharply conical shape of the hat at first, expanding to broadly conical, or broadly convex with a raised center or point.
Hygrocybe conica is currently treated by mycology as a highly variable species found in Europe, North America, South America, and Asia [source].
This photo shows how the cap blackens with age.

Cyptotrama aspratum (Agaricales - Physalacriaceae), the Golden-scruffy Collybia or Gold tuft, is a pantropical mushroom absent from Europe and Northwestern North America [1].
Cyptotrama aspratum posses compounds with strong larvicidal activity against mosquito Aedes aegyptii, responsible for transmitting yellow fever and dengue viruses between people [2].

A close up showing the shell sculpture of the White garden snail, scientifically named Theba pisana (Gastropoda - Helicidae). Theba pisana is also named Sand hill snail, White Italian snail, Mediterranean coastal snail, or Mediterranean snail.
It is a Mediterranean, edible land snail introduced to North America, where is regarded as the worst potential agricultural pest of the helicid snails. Theba pisana is capable of explosive reproductive rates where it has been introduced, and can be found in densities of up to 3000 snails per tree after periods of less than five years. Once established, Theba pisana causes severe defoliation of a number of plants, including citrus and ornamental plantings [source].
