the attachment was light blueish purple in hue probably from the purple masses that were intertwined and expanding. See image 3.

now that I’m seeing these images on a larger screen, I think white balance may be to blame. the backgrounds in most of these are conspicuously cool.

I’ve found four specimens of Fuligo septica and each is diffrent. I don’t know if there just variants or different species or at different points in their fruiting cycles.

Have never seen blue in F. septica before. Come to think of it, I haven’t seen blue in any slime mold.
