Probably 3 species. The orange spheres, The maroon capped lollipops, and the fuzzy yellow caps are all different stages of Hemitrichia Calyculata. Ive never seen the middle stage youve captured before in nature. Really great find.

The black stipe with the oblong white top is Arcyria or Comatrichia. Normally I would immediately go with arcyria, but there is something a little strange looking to me, so I’ll check into the other Genus.

Looks like you have at least 4 different slimes there, and Scutelliina scutellata as a bonus. Great pictures! Your macro lens rocks.
