Bright Yellow Slime Mould.

Hello, Could anyone identify this bright yellow slime mould please. It's on a piece of carved pine. The closest I can get to is Tubifera ferrigunosa but that is respberry coloured. Sorry for the lack of information and thanks in advance.

Re: Strange One!!!!

Thanks for the conformation Chris. A delicate flick with a scalpel blade and off it fell.
All the best,

Strange One!!!!

I have been looking for Marasmius husonii on ivy leaf but came across this strange looking specimen which I think may not even be a mushroom at all. I think it may be a seed pod but would appreciate conformation. It was found on the front of a dead ivy leaf amongst leaf litter. Apologies for the poo...

Re: Help with i.d , hairy bracket!!

Very useful tip, thanks
The tubes totally collapsed when dried which is quite cool. Not sure if this happens with other poroids?

Re: Help with i.d , hairy bracket!!

Very good. Just need to go back to see if its I.benzonium or I.resinosum. Context and trama show different colouring during formitoid stage. Also found that this has been previously recorded in the same woodland in 2007.
Thanks again.
