Observation 20828: Leocarpus fragilis (Dicks.) Rostaf.
When: 2009-05-04
No herbarium specimen

Notes: 35°12’15.59"N, 85°55’13.48"W, el. 589 m, Central Campus.

Habitat: mulch under ornamental pine trees on a university campus.

These slime molds came out after two days of heavy rains. They were streaming along and aggregating on the underside of a stick resting on the ground, so I turned the stick sideways for a few of these photos. While streaming they were bright banana yellow, but some older ones had formed little balls that were a darker tangerine orange. The balls are only 1-2 mm in diameter.
