According to wikipedia, Physarum is in Physarida & Fuligo is in Physarales, unless this is wrong, I think their common classification is Myxogastria which has been already proposed…

referring to just this observation.
are you saying we can’t get any more “general” than Physarum or Fuligo?
becuase, i think that has already been proposed.
i’m having a hard time discerning what your comment was about…

Not possiable

Its only possible to name Slime moulds when they have produced fruiting body,s and spore are been relished. While its still a plasmodium it no more then a pretty photo.

As I have already stated “plasmodium is to immature to name”

so, propose a name…

i don’t get this trend where people are commenting (naming species) and not proposing names.
too cool for name proposals??

Yellow plasmodium

Not meaning to be getting at any one but why does every yellow plasmodium get called Physarum polycephalum. Its just as likely to be a Fuligo septica or any other Physarum species. Many of which have a yellow plasmodium.

Would it not be better to leave a note and say plasmodium is to immature to name.
