Myxos New Hampshire Style "Day Four"

Post by beetleman »

Well, this will be the last set of pictures for this slime mold plasmodium. I have been pulled out of the wilderness for my last week of work. My boss has me back at the main building. This is day four. The thing has moved and changed shape very much during that time. A very fasinating subject for sure. The second picture is just a closeup of some of the amazing structure of the creature and the third one is of those white eggs which are now yellow (See the little crabby thing?). I don`t think the plasmodium had anything to do with them turning yellow.

This has been an absolutely fascinating project Doug. Your pics have really helped to give a tangible impression of this fascinating lifeform.

Hopefully there will be more to come.

Bruce :D

Looks as though the plasmodium has given up the ghost Doug, leaving behind a few more fruiting bodies. You have done really well in following up on this thing. Excellent work! :smt023

wow that stuff has moved fast.

this reminds me of the stuff in the planet earth tv special. one of the episodes had a time lapse of something like this it looked wicked while pulsing and moving.

Your study on this myxo has been great Doug. Very informative. Nice to sit back and enjoy your hard work. I believe I know what species you have been observing but will wait until you can see if it hardens in the serpentine pattern that it has assummed and then can be broken into for spore and capillitium sampling. The round yellow balls are more than likely a early form of one of the stemonitis species. Keep an eye on those.
