Badhamia ultricularis

Amoebozoa > Eumycetozoa > Physaraceae > Badhamia

Notice the size of the biggest ones in 1 mm. diameter.

Plasmodium yellow. Sporocarps clustered, usually in large colonies, globose, ovoid or obpyriform, 0.5-1 mm diam., pendent on thin, strand-like stalks, rarely sessile. Hypothallus dull red, inconspicuous. Stalks pallid, yellowish or tawny, weak, branched, often prostrate. Sporothecae blue-grey, iridescent violet, or cinereous. Peridium iridescent, hyaline or white when empty, smooth, rugulose or netted. Capillitium delicate, uniform, open, white. Spore-mass dull blackish brown. Spores either free or loosely aggregated into clusters which readily fall apart, globose, distinctly warted over the entire surface but sometimes more strongly on one side, usually bright violet-brown, sometimes darker, 10-14 µm diam.

I found this info HERE.

Hello FeCr!

I must say it again - you're very lucky! I've never seen such slime mould in my life. It looks fantastic. For first look - dried berries. Excellent colours and structure of main subject. Very good presentation with different POVs and zooms. Interesting note, great post.

Merry Christmas again, my friends!

What a beautiful collage, showing the details of this interesting fungi perfectly. They almost look like blue berries. The blue color is really beautiful. Great details and DOF in the lower right one. The others give a great idea about the size.

Hi Felipe and Cristina,

Hi Felipe.
It is difficult to believe, that their size is only 1 mm. Perfect close-up and wonderful presentation of this fungi. Nice collage with amazing lighting, colours and detailed. Perfectly selected views and magnification ratio. DOF at every shot is selected extremely exactly. Nice work and note. My best wishes and TFS.

Hello felipe and Christina,
Another very attractive collage of interesting fungi looking like Bilberries! Superb presentating and very interesting to see the enlargements and lovely focus on all parts. In what part of Spain do you find all these fantastic fungi?
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Cada vez me asombran más el tamaño de estos ejemplares que estás publicando Felipe.
Otra de esas múltiples vistas, brindándonos excelentes detalles de los mismos.
Buena iluminación, acertados POV por la claridad que logras y por la composición y fondo en cada una de ellas.
Una presentación que tal vez no llama la atención como otras tantas, pero que tiene el mismo sentido estético y pedagógico que las demás.
Un cordial saludo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo
