Anyone can have a lapse and that’s not ignorance, after all these genera are not so far away from each other.
As you also want to learn, two already are trying to improve their knowledge. Next time I hope that you will correct me.
I wish you good Observations in the field.

… the world of slime molds is yet another where my ignorance shines!

I don’t think this is Stemonitis sp.,

Please have a look to the link next to my vote, where both genera are mentioned.
