Coral Slime Mold

Ceratiomyxa fruticulosa


Tiny, branched coral-like structures that have a slightly fuzzy appearance. Individual fruiting bodies are 0.5-1 mm wide.


I spotted them growing in large clusters on rotting wood throughout a mixed forest.

Thanks Chun! It was very fresh - and it was growing everywhere thanks to the recent rain!
