Observation 167337: “Discomycetes” Sacc.

When: 2014-06-14

Collection location: Merapi Volcano, Central Java, Indonesia [Click for map]


Who: Heddy Julistiono (jamurku)

No specimen available

I took this picture at slope of Merapi volcano 3 weeks after eruption. I am wondering if it is slime molds. It grows on burned woods and sand. In addition of banana and grass, this very small organism was observed growing on slope where pyroclastic flows. It is one of pioneer organisms after Merapi’s eruption?
