Brucie

  1 month ago

I took this picture today - wondering what it was.

This yellow growth looked quite pretty. It stood out of the green growth on an old decaying tree stump. We were walking round a Loch where it is damp and green.
After getting home my research tells me it’s not actually a fungus as I’d presumed.
It is in fact Dog Vomit Slime Mold (Fuligo septica ) . A delightful name don’t you think?

It can move. It can multiply. It can survive assault from gardening tools. Sometimes it pulses like a slimy heart. You’d be forgiven for thinking it’s extraterrestrial. (In fact, in 1973 a blob of it was reported in Texas as an alien life form, so the story goes. ) Reply

We find beauty in the strangest of places don't we Brucie! I have several photo i've taken of funghi etc i've spotted mostly strangely growing on tree trunks. Under a microscope we'd see amazing patterns no doubt. Reply
