Metatrichia floriformis

"Very nice picture. It's funny in the Netherlands we often find this species on Beech trees in large quantities. Especially in spring/early summer. When do you mostly find it?"

"Wow, is that parasitism or just cheeky use of a convenient place to settle?"

Metatrichia floriformis

"Eucalyptus is something unheard of here in the Blue Ridge Mountain range but I am no stranger to them as California has plenty of them but back when I lived out there, I had not heard of slime molds.  These are quite interesting, are there any…"

What is your interest in slime moulds? (we need to know you're not a bot or spamster)
It's always exciting to find active plasmodia in the field and I check them regularly in eager anticipation of finding and identifying their fruiting bodies. Some form exquisite sporangia but other seem to retreat into the log or other substrate never to be seen again.
I have had a life-long interest in birds and a more recent interest in plants, fungi, invertebrates and just about every aspect of the natural world. For the past seven years I have been studying slime moulds in a tall wet eucalypt forest in northern Tasmania (Australia) and have collected over 120 species - all within one kilometer of my home.
In 2014 I published "Where the slime mould creeps - the fascinating world of Myxomycetes". There's more information on my website:

Only joking regarding "not fitting the descriptions" - it's a useful excuse I can use when I can't identify something ;)

I use Poulain and also Ing (which has a good key but not good illustrations). Nannenga-Bremekamp's book looks very good. I don't have a copy - it's quite expensive but looks like it could be worth the investment.

Your collections are fantastic. Unfortunately I have quite a few other responsibilities at the moment which mean I am in the field less than I would like.

Kind regards,

John

Thank you Sarah - myxos sometimes "don't quite fit their published descriptions" here either!

Your website looks great - I have come across it before. I have plans to set up a new site for myxos here in the near future.

I will pm you my email address.

Kind regards,

John

P.S.The link above in your profile needs a " https//:" removing by the way.
