Yellow Slime Mold 24 Hours Later This slime mold certainly has had some developments.<br />
This morning it was high Sun, dry and baking - our slime mold was consistency, dry pavlova! (sorry, did not get a snap)<br />
Then an unexpected rain storm hit - this photo taken a couple of hours later, seems to be producing spore.<br />

''Fuligo septica'' is a species of plasmodial slime mold, and a member of the Myxomycetes class. It is commonly known as the dog vomit slime mold or scrambled egg slime because of its peculiar yellowish, bile-colored appearance. A common species with a worldwide distribution, it is often found on bark mulch in urban areas after heavy rain or excessive watering. Their spores are produced on or in aerial sporangia and are spread by wind.
