Myxomycetes

A slime mould rather than fungi.

Thanks.

Thanks for the help. I was wondering what you would classify a slime mould as - would you put it in the fungi and lichen group or the other organisms?

Leave it in Fungi and Lichen

Leave it in Fungi and Lichen even though as pointed out it isn't.
