They are visible on the other but only if you click on it for the larger size. I don’t think you can tag both the mushroom and the slime mold?! Here is a quote from the web page I linked, John Plischke III’s winter mushroom note: “Slimemolds20-21. Metatrichia vesparium The Multigoblet Slime is typically found in the goblet shaped stage in the winter, it can be attacked by another fungus called Polycephalomyces tomentosus that looks like little white colored stalked balls growing on the slime mold, it can also be found growing on Hemitrichia serpula. It resembles Phaeocalicium polyporaeum in shape and size.” Also it resembles the common Mycocalicium subtile.
