here i'm also not completly sure---> fungi (phleogena sp.? ) or slime mold {myxomycota} (didymium/physarum sp.?). will revisit that location the next days for some sample for the microscope, so i can say it for sure!!!


the actual highlight of this spotting, are the little different species of "mycological" guest's , to see on few of the fruitingbodies. i have marked them with red arrows, but there are still not good to see (i'm happy that my camera is able to shot the slime-mold sized specimen, those on the actuall spotting are way to tiny for my camera!!)

you could say it so, or you/I could say: i like to think about stuff, others dont want to think about. My life is docus-books-and life expirience (as long as it has to do with nature {or history untill 1 b.c. })

fluffberger, i have got some new spores, and i will go for this one into directon of slime mold, (maybe i will upload them the next time)!

i don not want to come over: picky! but can you be sure then, because many of my slime mold spores- pictures look similiar as yours.!! do you have the possibility to make another spore-analysis. take some specimen with a ripe head, crush them carefully and try to lay down all material. when you see the strings you can be sure, otherwise would i not rule out the possibility that this are slime mold spore ( but ok, i don't expirience it myself, i can only suggest from what i see). ? but otherwise i will believe you when you say it is so, i think you're capable enough for fungi-id!! :)

thx again, as mentioned i will get some samples the next days, had you seen the spore pictures ( ) (please compare, because the spore-picture from your spotting shows round spores but i could not find the "strings" { }), maybe you have still a slime mold ??
