Fuligo septica

Common name: Scrambled egg slime, Dog vomit slime, Troll butter, Flowers of tan, Flowers of sulphur
Spore Print: None!
Habitat: These were growing on the forest floor on pine needles and leaves.
Edibility: Edible, but I'm not sure that I'd eat it!
Comments: This is not actually a mushroom, it's a slime mold with the largest fruiting body of any of the slime molds! It becomes a grey-black color when it matures. Slime molds were once classified as fungi but are now in a class by themselves. This mold is more like a blob of goo and is very slimy and sticky to the touch.
