Bulbillomyces farinosus

Hi,
I know you posted this a long time ago but I am just about to upload a photo of Bulbillomyces farinosus so I was checking for other photos on Ispot. I'm certain that the photo above (thanks to the quality and size) is of a developing myxomycete. They have a shiny smooth surface and are at least five times the size of the granules of Bulbillomyces farinosus. If this was the image you were referring to on "Wild About Britain" - http://www.wildaboutbritain.co.uk/bulbillomyces-farinosus I can see where what you mean. Unfortunately that is a photo of a developing Myxomyceyte as well!

Bioimages has some decent photos of the correct species. http://www.bioimages.org.uk/html/r145540.htm

Here's a link to the post of Bulbillomyces farinosus that I've just added http://www.ispotnature.org/node/633932
