Scrambled-Egg Slime??

Description:

A mass of this yellow weird blobbish stuff on a stump.

Habitat:

A clump on top of a stump.

Notes:

Very interesting looking. Looks like some slug slime along with the slime mold. A like the name of this if it is indeed the scrambled egg slime.

HI anne, I think you have most of the information you need, but I'd add that slime moulds (myxomycota) are classified in the Kingdom Protoctista. Fuligo septica is also known as the "Dog-vomit" slime mould.

Hi Gary, yes, a few feet in from one of the trails going through the Native Forest at NYBG. Does this belong in Fungi category or as something else?
