No specimen available

Observation from the “Spring Fungi of the Sierra Nevada”, June 9th, 2005, Yuba Pass region.

These are the one photo I have of a fungus which is not a Basidiomyces or an Ascomyces, but it is a Myxomyces. (And what the difference is about these, I can’t remember right now… Oh wait, looking down the list here, that makes these a slime mold? Ok, sorry not a fungus…)

Id’ed by Dr. Desjardin. I wouldn’t have a clue.
