Coral slime
(Ceratiomyxa fruticulosa
  var. descendens )

Mold of this type is seen relatively often. It is as beautiful as a sea anemone.


(Ceratiomyxa fruticulosa
  var. porioides )

Characterized by a bee-hive-like design that reminds one of a coral frame, it belongs to the genus called Protostelia.


(Cribraria cancellata )

After emitting spores, a spherical sporangium leaves a frame like a non-mesh spoke.


(Cribraria cancellata )
※unripe fruiting body

This has an unripe fruiting body that is beautiful.


A variety of Ami-hokori (1)
(Cribraria sp.)

Some varieties of Ami-hokori (Cribraria tenella) have small, black grains on a fruiting body.


A variety of Ami-hokori (2)
(Cribraria sp.)

After ripening and emitting spores, only the spherical frame remains, which you can hardly imagine from the unripe fruiting body.


(Lycogala epidendrum )

Unripe Mamehokori vary in color from pink to orange. When older, they change color from ocher to brown. This is a common species.


(Tubifera ferruginosa )

Has a lovely fruit body appearing to be raspberries sitting on fallen trees.


(Reticularia splendens)

The sporangium is big, and spherical or pillow-shaped. The plasmodium changes color from white to pink, and to brown as it ripens.


(Arcyria denudate)

As soon as a fruiting body is made, the surroundings of an asci fall off, and netlike capillitium grow to emit spores.


(Arcyria cinerea)

A sporangium is whitish-grey to light yellow and grows in clusters on decaying fallen trees.

A variety of Ke-hokori
(Trichia sp.)

The color of the general fruiting body varies from yellow to ocher, while the plasmodium is white.


(Hemitrichia serpula)

Characterized by a big, mesh-designed sporangium that is glossy orange in color.


(Hemitrichia clavata
  var. calyculata)

A capillitium with spores that looks like cotton candy.


Many-Headed Slime
(Fuligo septica)

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


(Physarum viride)

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


(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.


(Diderma testaceum)

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


(Comatricha pulchella)

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


(Collaria arcyrionema)

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


(Stemonitis fusca)

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


(Stemonitis fusca )
※unripe fruiting body

The young fruiting body is quite different in shape and color from a ripened one.
