Myxo? on moss

Post by Flaxton » Tue Sep 19, 2017 11:17 pm

Not even sure it is a Myxo but thought this was the best place to start.
Small pinkish/brown patches looking a bit like mature stems of Stemonitis on moss

with nodulose spores.

Hi Mal

It could be. The spores looks within the realms of possibility. I can't really see what's going on in the macro photo.

Do you have spore size? Any capillitium?

Have you managed to dry and save any?

Kind regards,

John

Hi John
Sorry I missed your reply. Unfortunately it disintegrated before I could do any further examination.
Thanks anyway.
Mal
