Observation 130533: Stemonitis Gled.
When: 2013-03-17
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I thought it might help if I showed all three “phases” on this slime mold. The white balls undisturbed, the jelly-like mass with “hairs” which had been disturbed, and the way it looked the next morning-completely hard and tar-like. If that helps to ID it, I’d appreciate it.
