Dog vomit slime mold

Fuligo septica

Description:

There's still streaks of the plasmodial early stage visible in the middle of the picture, but I believe this is the stage just prior to joining together to sporulate then 'hibernate'. Touched with a finger, the yellow slime mold easily adheres to the skin; there is nothing holding it to the rest of the slime mold bits.

Habitat:

In old growth forest of Sitka spruce, Douglas fir, Western hemlock and red alder, crawling along the forest floor.
