To some, they may not be worth the bother because they are so small and really difficult to find but they are some of the most fantastic creatures to be found on the forest floor. These were found in the Curtis Creek area of Old Fort, North Carolina Smile

In Dallas, Texas 1973 a plasmodium, which produces these little fungi, was found on the lawns of some residents in a Dallas suburb. It was spectacular mass of crawling, pulsating yellow protoplasm. The pulsating yellow blobs caused virtual panic among the residents. The blobs were blasted with water but they broke apart and continued to crawl about and grow. This suggested to the residents that these were indestructable aliens from outer space or at the very least mutant bacteria that could take over the earth. Shocked Ref: Myxomycetes, A Handbook of Slime Molds by Steven L. Stephenson and Henry Stempen

Quite intriguing little organisms eh? Thanks Doug! Very Happy
