Personally I don't know of any slime mold fruit bodies showing up in the fossil record other than in amber maybe, along with  spore or two.  You present some very good questions though, ones that I wish I could knowledgeably discuss though I have spent at least 10 yrs. reading and studying about plasmodial slime molds and yet feel that I still know very little about them.  Sort of like quantum entanglement which I don't think no one really understands it either.  Steven Stephenson at the University of Arkansas might would be a fountain of information concerning what you have asked here.

Have conditions of the chemical environment conducive to slime mould growth been generalized other than a need for food?...that is...oxidizing versus chemically reducing; acidic versus alkalmine water chemistry? Have slime moulds been recognized in the fossil record?
