Myxos New Hampshire Style

Post by beetleman »

How about a dish of Metatrichia vesparium with a side order of yellow plasmodium. What luck, after seeing Walts` beautiful pictures, I come across this. I had just finished my lunch (painting bosses house still) and grabbed my camera and walked into the woods about 10 feet, found a good log and turned it over. Right before my eyes was this beautiful sight. A nice spread of slime molds in different stages of development and a beautiful yellow plasmodium. The plasmodium stage of slime molds moves like a giant amoeba, flowing over the surface as it ingests organic matter, such as dead leaves and wood. It was dark in the woods and I forgot to bring my mini tripod so I had to fire up my on-board flash for some extra light. I am not sure if the plasmodium is the same species as the fruiting bodies we see in the picture. I will try and follow up on this and get some more pictures tomorrow. FOV in first picture is about 4".

Interesting stuff anyway. :wink:

Excellent images Doug - something different to feed the mind as well as the eye. Guess I'm gonna have to start turning over logs...

Talking about eating, the fruiting bodies remind me of elder berry clusters ....although I guess that's more drinking than eating :D
