A new slime mould at home, 25 January 2023

Anything worth mentioning in this blog is mainly restricted to weekends at this time of the year when most of daylight hours are spent working. On Wednesday however I was getting our wheelie bin in and spotted a decaying leaf on the drive that was covered in a slime mould. 

I wasn't able to identify it myself so posted pictures on the slime mould id page on Facebook and the experts deemed it to be Didymium squamulosum. On the face of it a series of plain white spots about 1mm across but much more impressive in close up as shown in the photos below.
