On oak.

Extremely light, texture of styrofoam. When you drop a little piece it takes a long time to fall because it is very light compared to the size.

Spores perfectly round, 7.5 to 8.5 microns.

Description from Wikipedia

Protozoa are a diverse group of unicellular eukaryotic organisms, many of which are motile. Originally, protozoa had been defined as unicellular protists with animal-like behavior, e.g., movement. Protozoa were regarded as the partner group of protists to protophyta, which have plant-like behaviour, e.g. photosynthesis.
