I would never have guessed these were not myxo’s! Great call, and thank you for your input, Dan, and yours Damon and Paul.

I would have taken these to be a slime mold, but I didn’t find it in any of my books. So Roger’s Mushrooms says it is a jelly fungus related to Auricularia! That would explain the spores.

Good eye dan, i knew id seen them on here before.
