from the mxyos Erin! We need your insight on them! I see fusca and splendens rarely in this state.

Did I mention how nasty these neon globular mats are? I had no place to set my tripod, and as you can see in the habitat shot, there was little available light… So it seemed that every other time I would rest my hand or arm down to keep it steady, I would land in some of this nasty muck! Which by the way, liquifies into a wet paste when you touch it.

Similar indeed. I saw that some of the slime patches were white, but only two small ones. I guessed that the white patches were just younger. I wonder how many Stemonitis go through this neon yellow phase before turning brownish/wine red.
And yes, it certainly stood out. I don’t normally photograph myxogastrids but I liked the colour of these.

That colour is crazy. It must have stood out well.
