Notes: Some kind of slime mold? It was on a rotting Pinus sabiniana log being eaten by Dictyoptera simplicipes which can be seen here. http://bugguide.net/node/view/614265
Globose reticulated spiny spores, the spines are ~1 μ long.
Spore range = 7 (8) x 6 – 7 (8) μ
Average spore = 7 × 6.87 μ
Average Q = 1.02
15 spores measured.

I’ve added spore pics & information.
And found many more of them on the same log this time when I was not rushing. And I’m not completely convinced that the colors are completely accurate, but I think they are at least close.
Conifers are not as productive with slimemolds as hardwoods so would be worthwhile.
And see if this turns into anything.
Oftentimes hemitrichia stipitata, however I’ve never seen it with plasmodium attached to the FRB’s
