Observation 4354: Mycetozoa Bary ex Rostaf.
When: 2007-10-15
No herbarium specimen

Notes: At first I thought the pink form was Lycogala epidendrum, but they have the fuzzy matt underneath and when broken open are kind of gummy rather than runny. The darker one appears to be a later form. I guess they end up getting runny enough to run together. There were several of the darkened form and one of the fresh, pink form on an unidentified log.

I don’t believe E. lycoperdon ever develops pink in its aethelium. not sure about other Enteridium/Reticularia. if my two newly purchased Japanese slime mold books weren’t entirely in Japanese, I might have more to offer.

edit: E. lycoperdon should, if I’m not mistaken, also have a silvery sheen to the aethalium at maturity.
