Who cares what the name of the Class is when the MO observation cannot be identified any closer. MO should aim for MO observations that would be reliably identified, supported by herbarium specimens, and well documented by MO images. Only then you can decide on “the best name” for such a Mushroom Observer observation. Slime molds (and any other organisms in that matter) do not care how they are called.
