Coral Slime

Ceratiomyxa fruticulosa

Description:

There was quite a lot of this interesting looking slime mold on many of the rotting logs around the park. This slime gets its name because of the shape it takes (like tiny coral towers). It reproduces via spores on the outside of each tiny colum. It is generally white but can also be other colors like pinkish or yellowish.

Habitat:

Temperate forest on damp, decomposing logs. Rockwood Park, Virginia.
