Unknown slime mould

Post by awarner » Mon Mar 20, 2017 7:38 pm

I've found a couple of usual slime moulds before, Reticularia lycoperdon and Fuligo septica but this appears to be new to me.
Apart from the small blobs it has a creamy texture found on leaf litter, probably not the best descriptions but any ideas?

Hi,
these are not mature.
But I have an idea, that if you remember the exact place, you should go there and check, what developed out of them....

Good call, I actually went back today as it's part of the patrol route I use in the woods I look after for the National Trust and developed they did.

Ooh yes,

takes still some time until these are ready. Maybe this will turn out to be a Stemonitis species.

Unfortunately I will not see it mature as someone managed to find it and destroy them.
Possibly the same individual who decided to smash an artist bracket fungi I have been watching grow for the last three years.
