Roger just found this publication from Italy he picked up. It only has a bout 40 myxos in it, but this one looks like a dead ringer…

plasmodium always has appeared in THIS shape as a shade of yellow in my finds. Its possible that could be other, I’ll read some lit. Do you know if it was plasmodium, otherwise I was thinking along the lines of a Diderma effusum which would be more likely for a substrate like this.
