Observation 27670: Mycetozoa Bary ex Rostaf.
When: 2009-11-01
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I grew these in a moist chamber culture on oak bark with lichen. As you can see, they are small even for slime molds. The globules measure about .02 – .03 mm in diameter. After scouring the internet and mulling over my books I still have no clue what they are- Any suggestions?

I have seen similar bright orange things when out looking for slime moulds. When looked at under a microscope there was nothering seen to suggest that they were.

but I gotta say, yours is just about the most amazing one I’ve ever seen. They look like miniature Joshua trees with gelatinous tips.
