Calycina citrina is very common in my local woodlands, but these were a much brighter "dayglo" color. I'm curious to see what sequencing will determine for species.

An exceedingly rarely reported and very exciting find!!! I do not see what else these beautiful myxos could be except Diderma rufostriatum, which have been recorded fewer than 30 times worldwide to date -- only in three countries in Western Europe and a single observation in western Australia (per GBIF). Microscopy will be done to confirm, but the descriptions in the literature are very clear and these fit the description perfectly as far as I can tell. And, to make this all the more amazing, these were all found in dry leaf litter and on tiny twigs in my very own front yard by my friend @graysquirrel !

Each one of these things is only 2 or 3 millimeters long. Think they are slime mold fruiting bodies. Found on the underside of a piece of elevated rotting wood. Any further info would be appreciated.

Description

October 16, 2021 West Kootenays, British Columbia, Canada.

About 0.5mm tall, with stalk about half of height.

Distinct hypothallus, red/brown.
Red brown stalk, and lower half of the sporothecea red/brown. Top half of sporothecea light brown, with some brown mottles.

Dehisces along colour change.
Spores 9.8-12.0um. Pale orange and mostly translucent under light. Some worts.

Capillitium of long elaters, spiral banded, some branched (not majority) and some with enlarged nodes (not majority). About 4um wide. No spines. Moderately-long, smooth taper to point. Note the slight swelling before the smooth taper of the elater that Edvin Johannesen suggests is a prominent feature for this species.
