Orangish-red globules, and red stems with brownish black heads. Are they different forms of the same slime mold?

Hi fluffberger's,
Your question is not an easy one to answer most slime mould descriptions don't give any information on colour other then the plasmodium and then the final colour.

I also have my doubts over the given plasmodium colours as for example two weeks ago I collected a light brown plasmodium I have since had it in a moisture chamber and fruiting body's have developed this has turned out to be Trichia varia. The given plasmodium colour for this species is white.

Maybe trichia decipiens ?
