At first I thought this was a freak A. brachycarpus, which it resembles and was growing with (last two shots show them together), but then I looked around and realized there were many of them. They also have more ovate-elliptical leaves (widest at or below the middle) whereas A. brachycarpus seems to have more obovate leaves (widest above the middle). Also, longer, whiter hairs.

I wish there was more to learn about its biology. Is A. brachycarpus its closest relative? How does it avoid interbreeding if it blooms at the same time in the same place?

Maybe? Early in the investigation, but will have to come back to this one. On what looks like an old Russula. Many of these rotting fruitbodies with the same orange mold.

Phialides in whorls and the right shape, spores seem hydrophilic but perhaps not the right shape...not sure how many other molds share these characteristics. Maybe something else in the Nectriaceae?

Introduced invasive pigs, although (success!) these animals no longer occur on the island. Kiwis were there while I was there, trying to eradicate them. They were successful just six months later. The last feral pig was destroyed on July 5, 2006, and the native flora is reportedly on the rebound. Here's a fun sounding article: Rapid eradication of feral pigs (Sus scrofa) from Santa Cruz Island, California

"In 411 days, a total of 5036 pigs were removed....Sterilized adult pigs fitted with radio collars were subsequently used to aid in the location of surviving wild pigs and to monitor the success of the project. Female telemetered pigs were more effective than males at locating remaining wild pigs. Only 10% of the last 102 pigs (the last 20 or so present in each fenced zone) were dispatched as a result of being found with a telemetered pig, but telemetered animals were responsible for finding 43% of the very last pigs once normal hunting had ceased."
