Chocolate Brown Slime Mold

Stemonitis sp.


This is the weirdest fungi I have ever seen. Creepy too. It is brown and growing on a dead pine tree. It looks like feathers and you can blow it and it will move. The center is white and shiny. It is growing in a circle about 6 inches across.


Dead pine tree.
