Observation 215305: Myxogastria Caval.-Sm.
When: 2015-09-03
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This looks like Physarum polycephalum attacking Pleurotus sp (I have been seeing both P. ostreatus and P. pulmonarius) growing on a river birch log.
My photos look a lot like those at http://mushroomobserver.org/168627
