Myxogastria over my head… I would have called orange and all H. aurantius

I should have made it clear…..

That the white portion could easily be Hypomyces, but I am more interested in the orange, slimy, gelatinous substance that was creeping from fruit body to fruit body.

Thanks for all of your opinions, and thanks for your eyeballs, Rory.

Another set of eyes at the same location.

Tim, Caleb and I found an obvious slime mold, Hypomyces sp., Pleurotus Ostreatus and Trametes sp. on three logs that were on the side of a steep hill. You are all right. If any of you are ever in town, you should go out on a private foray with us. It would be fun.

Yes, slimy….
