Description

I believe you need microscopic analysis to take to species. Genus confirmation appreciated.

This caught my eye and the only one in the whole area. Growing on a pine tree. Really delicate as just a puff of wind and it would move when the leaves around it wouldn't move. Reminds me of cocoa :)

And I do not have a clue as to what it is, so fungi including lichens is my best guess!

I'm only guessing the id.
Growing on the top of a piece of Crack Willow that was partly submerged.
Three growths the largest being around thumb nail sized.
Really soft and squishy to the touch, almost like bags of water on legs.

I worked really hard to get a picture/ it was a small patch. I think this is really cool stuff- I didn't even see this at first because I was focused on a small lizard that was also on the log, but the lizard ran off and then I saw this. It's the second sighting of Chocolate tube slime mold I've had on the Cicada Trail, and I haven't seen it anywhere else yet.

Description from Wikipedia

Stemonitis is a distinctive genus of slime moulds found throughout the world (except Antarctica). They are characterised by the tall brown sporangia, supported on slender stalks, which grow in clusters on rotting wood. Identification within the genus is difficult, and can only be performed with confidence using a microscope.

No range data available.
