there are plenty of interesting fungus that grow on there however, not sure if the nematodes are problematic.

I just picked some horse dung and brought it home, wetted it and waited for somethimg to grow (I’m crazy I know). Is it so difficult to find?

I think I’m going to discard it because I see some nematodes there, maybe some Dictyocaulus sp.

for the specie you probably need a microscope

but to the genera it seem to be very distinct and pretty too, great find!

I’m afraid that only microscopy would get us to specie or is there any macro character that we could see? Is there any more common specie?

you can’t really confuse it for anything else, can’t wait to see it (one day surely)
