Day 3 – 24 August 2023

I found many F. septica aethalia on a rotting log pile.

The largest group had moved — the old area of colonisation was white while the newer area was lemon-yellow.

On Day 5, all of the slime moulds here had changed – some were now white, others disintegrating into a brown spore mass.

On Day 7 (09 September 2023), one of the larger F. septica on this log pile had made a come-back in a few, vibrant yellow, conjoined aethalia.

Where the aethalia previously was, there was a mass of greyish spores.
