Observation 214570: Myxogastria Caval.-Sm.

When: 2015-03-13

Collection location: Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, Santa Cruz Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Thomas Laxton (Tao)

No specimen available

This was consuming Agrocybe praecox from observation: http://mushroomobserver.org/200489?q=2dCoV
I found two spices of Myxogastria fruiting near by, a Physarum and Badhamia foliicola. I believe this is probably B. foliicola because of the orange color matches the plasmodium but that’s not enough to be sure.

Species Lists

In this image is a spices of Physarum (Smaller blue balls on stems.) and Badhamia foliicola (The larger orange balls.) These were near the plasmodium.
