  1. Nice! One of only 17 slime molds on JD now, such a mysterious category of life. Posted 11 months ago
  2. I have always loved slime molds since I first learned about how they can go from a bunch of single-cell organisms under the right conditions to a multicellular organism. Posted 11 months ago

The False Puffball, ''Enteridium lycoperdon'', is one of the more obvious species of slime mould or Myxogastria, typically seen in its reproductive phase as a white 'swelling' on standing dead trees in the spring, or on large pieces of fallen wood. Alder is a common host.
