Observation 177681: Fuligo septica (L.) F.H. Wigg.
When: 2014-09-10
( 2700m)
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Large mass of dog vomit slime working its way slowly, but surely across the forest floor(note slime remnants at lower left of where it has already traveled). This species has undergone some interesting tests in recent years where apparently it can actually seek out a food source through complex mazes. Fungi is indeed an intelligent decomposer.

See attached link below for more info-

Temp: low 70’s.

Elevation: 2700ft.

Found at the base of a Douglas fir.
