We found about 5 species of slime moulds on out foray. Unfortunately, as explained previously, I fail at remembering names. I'm a cell biologist. We only know model organisms... ^.^
Again, photos by Achiru.
A very common species -- Physarium sp. -- same one as in the older slime mould entry.
Still can't figure out what kind this is...
This, apparently, is also a slime mould. It looks like someone rolled up balls of gum and stuck them on a log... (Lycogala epidendrum - thanks, Emma!)
I think this is Ceratiomyxa sp.?
So yes, I found a very useful site for looking at hawt sexey pictures of slime moulds, and also for their identification: http://pick5.pick.uga.edu/mp/20p?see=I_UARK/0001
And that made me late for Ecology...gotta run!
