A large amount (good panful!) felt soft & wet like mousse
Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
I have been advised in the past to enter slime moulds under 'Fungi and Lichens' even though they are not because more expert people who filter their observations will see them.

It looks like the one that I posted yesterday which somebody ID'd as 'Dog Vomit Slime Mould'. Are there varieties of this mould? I prefer Scrambled Egg to Dog Vomit.
I think the Dog vomit slime refers to the way it looks as it matures! Scrambled egg slime is another name for the same thing but when it looks slghtly nicer. Flowers of tan is another name.
I also undertood dogvomit slime as an alternative name; but keying in F.s. in Ispot noted the recommendeds included 5 vars (variants)(& 9 other Fuligo sp's!), & Googlg 'F.s. varieties' found geogragh.org.uk which said we have 2 vars, 'septica' found only as far N as Yorkshire, & 'flava' "in Scotland",named after it's yellow colour (& in the photo a very lurid yellow).The author, Lairich Rig, is against using 'Dog vomit' as it's far more dscriptive of the early stages of another slime mould.
+Waynesword shows a 'peanut butter' F.s.; & another said Plasmodial color can be affected by pH, temperature or ingested materials
When I first saw it, it struck me a being a piece of lemon skin that somebody had thrown; hence, I titled my spot as that.
