Slime mold

Trichia verrucosa

Description:

Slime mold with yellow-ochre stalked sporangia in clumps. The height of the sporangia would have been about 4mm.

Habitat:

Spotted on the underside of damp decaying log.

Notes:

My thanks to Clive Shirley for the correct ID. This was previously incorrectly labelled as Hemitrichia clavata, which according to Clive, are mostly upright. http://www.flickr.com/photos/24634827@N0... Family: Trichiaceae
