Just did! I have this one that I am unsure about. I thought it was a fungus, but now I'm not so sure. http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/398...

Well I have moved all my spottings that I suspect are slime molds to "other" :)

Wow! The videos are really amazing too. I've seen videos of them in the wild, but never solving puzzles like that.

Good to know. So are slime molds actually considered molds anymore?

Slime molds are no longer classified as fungi, but protozoa which is not a category. So "other" is correct.
