Slime Molds maybe??

Post by beetleman »

After looking at Walters "MYXOMYCETES XIX" post, I remembered I had these photos from early June I took of something growing on the end of an old cut log. I am not sure if they are the same thing. The first cluster was maybe 3cm long.

Your getting good at this myxo stuff Doug. You and Walt are making me look bad. :lol: Yep, looks as though you too have got yourself some images of the Lycogala species. Excellent shots there Doug. :D

Wow Doug the first two images had me leaning towards a form of jelly fungi that I have recently recorded. But the lower subjects of the bottom image most definitely look, as Ken says, like Lycogala. Very nice, no, excellent early fructification images of this genus. You may still however have a mix here. The subjects must have a chance to naturally dry. The jelly fungi if present will rot away but the Lycogala will remain and turn a dark gray. The time frame also seems right as for us in the northern latitudes these seem to come up early.

Good find, and good memory to hunt those suckers down.
