I don’t even begin to understand them; nevertheless I love to look for slime molds. Currently our weather is wet and drizzly making it good for setting the stage for slime mold growth. Most of the times I find them on damp logs but they can be found on the ground, leaves and standing dead trees.
I found several on this log as well.
I found this one and the following slime molds last year.
I think the common name for this one is Wolf's Milk.
Stemonitis splendens, Chocolate Tube Slime Mold
