Large yellow plasmodium slime mold.
On dead wood.
Possibly the plasmodium of Badhamia utricularis. Suggestions are welcome. Spotted on a dead tree trunk near Hoenderloo, Veluwe, Holland.
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 :)
Yeah it's getting close to a reveal. ;-)
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.
