Unusual fungi.

Postby Allan.W. » Mon Oct 16, 2017 7:28 pm

I wonder if anyone has any idea what this unusual Fungi could be ? I found loads of clumps of it in our local forest a day or two back , they seemed to start out a yellowish colour ,turning to white after a while ,they were found mainly clinging to Scabious stems.
Any ideas ?? Regards Allan.W.

Might be the delightfully named 'Dog Vomit Slime Mould' :?

At the end of March ,I had an early morning trip out, to a site near home ,hoping for some roosting Green -Veins,which I managed to find a couple and a plant (Toothwort ) ,whilst out I came across this very unusual orange fungus, I found 3 clumps in all. a curious thing though ,I returned exactly a week later ,and no sign of any of it,completely vanished ! Anyone have any ideas ?

I think that is Melastiza cornubiensis. It's not one I regularly take home for eating ...
