Multigoblet Slime Mold

Metatrichia vesparium


Fruiting bodies (sporangia) had thin stalks with black, shiny goblets on top. A few had red, fluffy spore masses coming out of the goblets, while others that had already opened and released the spores were empty. The goblets were approximately 1-2 mm tall.


Growing on rotting wood in a mixed forest.
