Slime mould????





I have absolutely no idea which of the Slime Moulds this is (all suggestions gratefully received).
It was growing on some Ivy on the woodland floor.
 All I can say is that it is not a species I have ever encountered in the wood before.

  1. I know little about Myxo's but Leocarpus fragilis is a possibility. The sporangia are clustered but individuals have short stalk and are ovoid or cylindrical (according to books!).

  2. Thanks Philip. Maybe the specimen was not fully developed, but under the microscope no sign of any sporangia(or anything much else of any note!).
