I plead ignorance. I thought the plasmodium which is common on Pleurotus was most likely P. polycephalum. This was on Auricularia sp. I did not realize there were many other options.

As many species in the Physarum and other genus have yellow plasmodiums I am curious as to how you have this named to genus level. I relies you may have collected this and kept it till it produced fruiting body’s and not mentioned this :)
