Image #139 – Carnival Candy Slime

Image #139

Like Halloween caviar, the Carnival Candy Slime fungi brightens the base of a rotting tree in Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest. Carnival Candy Slime!!!  Where do these mushroom specialists come up with these names??  Its Latin name is Arcyria denudata.  I may not have it correctly identified and encourage any slime lovers out there to set me straight if I have the name wrong.  A truly spectacular growth, whatever its name might be. ☙
