Is this a mixed species of two slime molds growing on top of each other – or are the black dots part of the sporangium?
This thing was huge at maybe ten feet from one end to another. (Maybe several growing on same log?)
Both sides of log and even on sticks next to the log as seen in third picture down. I think it is fallen big leaf maple.

… but more probably they have the same source of Nutrition.
There are often several species of myxomycetes together with Ceratiomyxa.
Hey thanks! Very interesting. So maybe a dumb question but is one of the slime molds feeding off of the other one?
Yes, nice Ceratiomyxa + another myxo: could be Didymium or Physarum or Cribraria(?) … id not possible (fresh, immature)
