Young Comtrichia slimemould to identify further would be much trickier... This was a pain of a photograph to take in the field and required quite a bit of work at home! These are small specimens about 1mm high.

A tiny little 1- 1.5mm myxo (slime mould) I watched over a week. Yesterday  the spores were gently floating away leaving a delicate and beautiful little structure. šŸ’•

Slimemould - Metatrichia floriformis
One of the most common species I was finding this year , I love how the forest canopy was reflected in each fruiting body.

Glittery greetings to all on this #SlimeMoldSunday! Here is my fourth and final post featuring the beautiful and ever-changing Badhamia utricularis. I saved this dazzling display of iridescence for last since I always find this shiny phenomenon to be especially impressive. It was also the last stage that I was able to observe while monitoring a particular collection near my home. I don't believe iridescence always occurs with this species, as there were other sets that had already begun to dehisce (crack open to release spores)Ā while still in their light blue form. As such, I feel even more fortunate to have witnessed it. šŸ˜Š Swipe for a very short animation of the stages that came before this one. Cheers!

Heres a treat for #slimemoldsunday a Hemitrichia calyculata AND a Polycephalomyces tomentosus fungus attached to it.

Often when I show people tiny fungi or myxos it can be hard for them to understand the scale of the organism. Here is a novel attempt to fix this! This Hemitrichia (bottom center) is placed in front of a American one-cent piece (penny). You may also notice a fungi infecting the myxo. If you squint you can almost see Abe sitting inside the building.

Slimemould 
I found this one starting out on a piece of cut building wood in a pile of rubbish in a local reserve , I think the warm temps altered its progress , when I went to check back on day 4 the dumped rubbish pile had been removed.

Happy #SlimeMoldSunday to all my Badhamia buddies! Here's the sequel to last week's post. It's a different set of slime mold, but it was found on the same blue oak log, and I believe it is the more mature stage of the same species - what an amazing transformationĀ from the shiny, orange "tic-tacs" we saw before!
.
Just a few inches away, another set had already begun to dehisce (crack open to release spores). I wanted to make a focus stack of that set as well, but there was a slight breeze causing the ultra lightweightĀ peridia (outer shells) to dance around way too much for that kind of photography. Instead of waiting around for a lull that probably would have never come, I took a close-up video so it could still have its turn in the slimelight. Cheers!

Not the best shot, the light was horrific today, shutter speeds up in the 20 second range! But these Acryria are still developing well.

A very young colony of an Acryria slimemould. In a few days this will be producing thousands of spores. Very challenging lighting conditions, might give it another go tommorow.

Happy #SlimeMoldSunday to all the sporangia sleuths out there! Last week, I posted the plasmodial stage of Badhamia utricularis, which I found way up at Kruse Rhododendron SNR. I was disappointed that I couldn't monitor the progress of that specimen becauseĀ the reserve is nearly three hours away from my home, and slime molds rarely develop properly if disturbed (not to mention that mushroom collection is specifically prohibited in the reserve, and it would be impossible to remove the slime mold without also removingĀ its Stereum host).
.
I'm sure you can therefore understand my excitement when I discovered that the same species also occurs on the hill in my neighborhood, not even a ten-minute walk from my front door! I have been checking on it frequently and I've already photographed a few of its various color transformations, which I will be sharing in the weeks to come. Swipe for a behind-the-scenes video which shows my set-up, a photographer experiencing a "moment of reflection," and a sneak peek of some of the other stages yet toĀ come. Cheers!

Here a yellow plasmodium is feeding on a Phelebia crust fungus. Have seen several plasmodia out and about today. We are having very mild and damp weather here in Wales and they seem to be enjoying it. This is probably the slimemould Badhamia utricularis.

A stunning little slimemould colony found today growing on a fallen birch tree. Not sure of species yet. Still a little young! Will be getting back to it. This close up reveals the thin membrane or hypothalus the sporangia spring from.
