Your observations are not equal

Christian’s shows an obvious parasite on a slime mold. Yours is vaguely Stilbelloid, but doesn’t look like it’s growing on a slime mold, which is why I asked. Yes, micro could be required in both cases to make a certain determination, but your fungus is more unusual to me than Christian’s. It’s not a group I’m familiar with. I’m really just throwing out ideas.

This was growing on a sort of myxomycete, I’m not sure which, some parts were round but not all, and had yellow powder inside. The myxomycete was growing on the base of a stump with debris.

About the first part, vote on Christian observation http://mushroomobserver.org/196349?q=2gU0z (just for example) like you did with mine, if you think that micro is needed.

I’m pretty sure

the substrate isn’t a slime mold, but if somehow it were, I was going to include it in a new species list for myxomyceticolous fungi.

Sorry, I don’t understand the first part of your comment.

It’s incredible

your performance within and without NA… At least be imparcial!

By the way, what have the substrate to do with it?
