Happy #SlimeMoldSunday !!
Check out this beautiful immature slime mold fruiting bodies found in a coffee plantation in Colombia by @marin_mushrooms.
@sarah.lloyd.tasmania tentively identified it as Craterium paraguayense, but as OP noted in their caption:
"These are immature sporangia, and [for most slime molds] one cannot ID the species or even genus, at this stage from just the photos."
Nevertheless, this is a gorgeous picture and it is my pleasure to share it with you. If you want to see more pics like this one and tons of interesting info on mushrooms and slime molds, check out @marin_mushrooms ' Instagram feed.
