It is just a guess based on the photos

On closer examination of them, I see the D. bahiense has visible lime on the capitilum – crystals that look like spores. I can’t confirm that. My only scope is to stop down my camera to the minimum, use a tripod, and crop the photo. But I am waiting for that scope!

Martin, I know you scope stuff… so this might be nec for this one. It does look like some Physarum, other Didymium, and I think some Cribraria. I want to say that the head of this one should be more on the white side, but with slimes hard to know all their stages.
But all things considered, you may be right on.
