Observation 136548: Myxogastria Caval.-Sm.

Notes:
Flower bed by front door – very pale tan with almost undetectable yellow, fruit morphology very much like a sponge – very different from my earlier post (http://mushroomobserver.org/136496?q=1JUr0) that was bright yellow and composed of cylindrical – almost thread-like mass.Fungarium – NIH and Regional mycoflora #29

You need fully formed specimens. Fuligo will have lime chips inside while Mucilago will have only hair like filaments. Mucilago usually has a crusty exterior not so fluffy, but not always.

I don’t disagree, but what is your thinking? How would one separate Mucilago from Fuligo?
