On Horse Chestnut (Aesculus hipocastanum) log
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.
11,500 feet elevation.
On display at the Feria del Hongo de Senguio (Senguio fungus fair).
Growing on wood. The spores taste bad.
Probably the same thing was recollected in Oaxaca: http://mushroomobserver.org/115815
On redwood duff in a recent burn area.
Spores smooth and round, 8 micrometers in diameter.
I picked this slime mold up a couple days ago and I am keeping it as a pet. It has changed color from orange to chocolate brown.
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.
