Observation 45832: Myxogastria L.S. Olive
When: 2010-05-24
Who: jim (ckm3)
No herbarium specimen

Notes: The fungi in question is the yellow one that seems to be engulfing the Exidia alba. To the right in the picture, I suspect that the golden/tan fungi is what happens to the E. alba when the yellow stuff gets through with it.

…you oughta check out some photos of it in its earlier stages. Could be wrong, but I think I’m correct here. If not I will shed no tears or soil myself…

Beautiful situation you’ve got in that photo. Mad props on that there…
