It was ID’d by Dr. Steven L. Stephenson and here is a link to a page in New Zealand (with photos) about it.

Those are very cool. A quick google search for images with this name didn’t turn up anything that looks real similar to me (slime mold with a dark spore mass, but it can have star like arms though not has regular as these). What did you base your id on? What is it growing on? Are you sure it’s a slime mold?
