I would say Ive seen some mutations of P compressum that look like this with the halving of the bodies, lime crystals, and black sporangia. The first photo on full size near the bottom has some examples of what I think this looks like in prime form…. but could also be didydium… will look into it.

That’s what I wanted to post too.
