More Slime Moulds

Back in January I posted a Cribraria sp which I found on a fallen log. Since then I have come across two more species.



















Other than excluding those species which occur on conifers, I am still no closer to identifying them.
Bruce Ing's book "the Myxomycetes of Great Britain & Ireland" appears to be out of print, and they seem to be too obscure even for the Internet to be of much help.
Such a pity as these beautiful little organisms are certainly worthy of a closer inspection. I can't help wondering whether the name - Slime Mould puts people off!
