No probably not.

It would take DNA sequencing, but when they begin to form sporocarps it becomes easier as in this specimen.

IS there even a way to differentiate between the plamodia of the two species morphologically?

Not necessarily transparent.

especially if it’s at the state of fruiting, which this specimen seems to be doing. Look at images: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Fuligo_septica_bl2.JPG from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuligo_septica and http://www.messiah.edu/...
The plasmodium may be able to change its own color as in my observation where there is purple-blue plasmodium expanding into light blue filaments and fades to yellow: http://mushroomobserver.org/image/show_image/355340?obs=141735&q=1kd32 from http://mushroomobserver.org/141735?q=1kd32

Shouldn’t the plasmodium for F. septica be transparent?

Looks like Fuligo septica
