Observation 27670: Fungi Bartl.

When: 2009-11-01

Collection location: Southwest Barry Co., Michigan, USA [Click for map]

Who: Jon Reck (Jon Reck)

No specimen available

I grew these in a moist chamber culture on oak bark with lichen. As you can see, they are small even for slime molds. The globules measure about .02 – .03 mm in diameter. After scouring the internet and mulling over my books I still have no clue what they are- Any suggestions?

and should be scoped, if a collection still exists. 2009 was a long time ago!

I have seen similar bright orange things when out looking for slime moulds. When looked at under a microscope there was nothering seen to suggest that they were.

I don’t know beans about Myxos…

but I gotta say, yours is just about the most amazing one I’ve ever seen. They look like miniature Joshua trees with gelatinous tips.
