the clarity and comprehensiveness of your contributions here will directly impact your likelihood of your observations gaining attention and generating discussion. first and foremost, most of your observations are missing a location. secondly, the fertile surfaces of the fungi you photograph must be visible, the closer and clearer the better. Tao is correct in that plasmodial stages of slime molds (seen here) are seldom identifiable by themselves, and certainly not from single, far away images. even with all the above detail present, a good many observations cannot be confidently identified, either due to lack of microscopy, or the sheer lack of expertise present on the site for a given part of the world. to the best of my knowledge, there are few if any members here with direct experience with the fungi of Southeast Asia.

I encourage you to read through the following page carefully:


and come back with a new round of observations.

You can’t place a myogastria in genus from plasmodium they all look the same, there are many colors of plasmoidum and a good amount of them are yellow.
