It was mistaken for a slime mold for a long time but Schenella microspora is still a gasteroid fungi even though it does not have any cortex as all the others species of its family. It is definitely an odd ball.
Here is a lithograph of a spore and capillitium.
My other observations of this species.

Schenella is a slime mold?!
