Glad you liked the video. It and the others like it changed the way I look at Stemontis. I had not recognized a difference between Tubifera and Tubulifera, that is I did not know there were two myxos with such similar names. Thanks for pointing that out.

Check these two obs. of mine which fall outside my experience and may have some similarities with yours: 172323 and 136461.

Cool video. I was thinking perhaps Tubifera or Tubulifera but I can’t find enough information to make an informed proposal.

Hard to say – Could it be Tubifera or Stemontis? Have you seen these videos?
