the Prunus on Lynch Creek Trail north, west of Sonoma Mountain Parkway, was very likely P. lyonii, "Catalina cherry". native to the Channel Islands off California, it is also listed as P. ilifolica ssp. lyonii, a subspecies of hollyleaf cherry, the one I found a bit farther north on SMP. so, two more edibles added to my mental database.
