Chocolate Tube Slime Mould



This fungus is beautiful! Its a very dark brown & almost fluffy looking. At first I thought it was some sort of fabric....but no, it was living :)


Found on an old wooden cupboard in a very moist shaded area.

Keep trying - it will come good. Make sure you fully wait for the edit page to complete loading. PN is sensitive to 'timeouts'. I'm amazed you have now found 2 of these. They are a fascinating life form.. a kingdom of their own. You could visit to see some of these 'things'.

Argy I cant edit this spotting & put your ID on it for some reason. I've tried just using the common name & it still wont let me :( Thank you for your ID. I'm not sure what the problem is.
