Observation 31954: Bacteria
When: 2010-01-13
Who: Jonathan M
No herbarium specimen

Notes: this was odd I was putting it under the scope in a drop of water when something weird happen; it start to inflate and all destrow itself letting the thing in the second pic everywhere in the water drop and after that the mushroom was just a small thing all destroyed!

It was growing indoor on leaf , around 0,3-0,5mm.

Didn’t knew that bacteria could grow in a mass like that on leaf, still very beautiful to see, thank you :)

i don’t suppose anyone among the MO ranks would venture a guess at which one…

looks more like a bacterium of some kind than a fungus…
