It shouldn't matter -still good to document a stage of the slime mold. I have never seen a lovely jelly mat like this.

Thanks Leuba. I wish I could follow its progress, unfortunately I can't. You are right it's perhaps too early for an ID. I tried a field observation flowchart for the identification of slime molds and narrowed it down to Badhamia utricularis, though the website does mention that nothing conclusive can be drawn from the results of the charts. I have changed the description :)

Are you able to follow its progress, Jae...might be a little too early to ID for sure, but I am no expert.
Nice spotting.
