I can't believe there haven't been any December offerings . . . Anyway, a confident naming of a resupinate is always a bit special for me so this was very pleasing.
Good characters - that minutely "toothed" hymenium with the teeth "fringed"), thick-walled subiculum with clamps, and cystidia-like hyphal ends with abundant crystals, with the spores helping to separate it from other members of the genus:

I rarely collect myxomycetes as I'm a bit of a beginner with them. So the ones I come across are usually the more familiar ones.
That is the case here, but I do love the strange abstract beauty of these organisms. So here a detail of the capillitium of Comatricha nigra, with some spores:

Nice stuff Chris
I only ever seem to find Botryobasidium anamorphs.I was going to post on this thread but will leave it for a day or so. so as not to push this off "top spot" as it were. Has there ever been talk of a UKFungi Gallery?

I did a page before but it is non-standard and there were some security issues. There was talk of an official plug-in to do it, so Ill take a look to see if that has progressed at all.
