Observation 208144: Diderma hemisphaericum (Bull.) Hornem.
When: 2015-06-29
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This one may require a specialist. The “caps” are about 1mm across. It has a “stem” but does not have gills. It’s growing on bark chips from a Chinese Elm that was taken down and chipped up about May 15. It’s been raining here almost ever since.

I discovered this while studying images of Lycogala epidendron growing in the same location.

Thanks, Danny, I sort of thought about a slime mold, but without much experience to back it up. I respect your opinion, and I recall you have weighed in about other strange fungi that I have submitted. Great! Thanks again!
