The small mesh-like plasmodium of Susuhokori spreads over decayed trees and is extremely conspicuous in the forest.

 
 

Ao-moji-hokori
(Physarum viride)
 

 
Have a fruiting body on a stalk, it is verdigris at first but later becomes yellowish, and cracks are generated from it.

 
 

Shiro-jiku-moji-hokori
(Physarum melleum)
 

 
Having white stalks, the sporangium is sub-spherical and light bluish-white, while the plasmodium is white to yellow.

(Didymium squamulosum)
 

 
Regularly observed from spring to autumn on fallen leaves, etc.

 
 

Manjyu-hone-hokori
(Diderma testaceum)
 

 
The fruiting body is shiny and shaped like a sweet bun. Clusters on fallen leaves can be seen from spring to autumn.

 
 

Aka-kaminoke-hokori
(Comatricha pulchella)
 

 
Named after the long black stalk resembling hair, although that of the basic species is short.

 
 

Tsuya-eri-hokori

Has a spherical sporangium with a pearly luster on a thin, delicate stalk. The plasmodium is white.

 
 

Murasaki-hokori
(Stemonitis fusca)
 

 
Some of the fruiting bodies become bundle form. The sporangium is dark brown in color.
