blobs about 1mm in diameter on soggy rotten wood. Fungus or slime mould?
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.
Hemitrichia calyculata perhaps? Hard to tell from a photo especially at this stage.
Thanks for that. We can now sleep safely in our beds, although it appears that the giant amoeba-like alien that terrorized the small community of Downingtown, Pennsylvania, in the 1958 American horror/science-fiction film "The Blob" might have been based on slime moulds...
