There are a few different colour forms of Fuligo septica. I don’t know if this is one of those, or another Fuligo species.
More brownish coloured septica (due to unfavourable weather conditions?):

I have seen plasmodia that haven’t been able to mature well, and they end up much flatter than they usually do – sometimes collapsing completely without developing spores.


Thanks for the comment. I did look at Fuligo, but the colours and thickness didnt seem to match. My reference shows Fuligo Yellow or White singularly. The specimen that I loaded was almost flat all over and also seemed to follow the contour of the stump surface.?. Will go with your suggestion. From experience you are usually right.
