Amazing!

That my friend, right there is Stemonitis.

Phylum: Myxomycota
Class: Myxomycetes
Order: Stemonitales
Family: Stemonitidaceae
Species: Stemonitis fusca Roth

That first picture is of Stemonitis in its plasmodial stage.

The second is it's fruiting stage... like this...



It's a really interesting slime mold.... pretty rare too from what I can tell.. tell your friend to save some of the spores. I'm sure there's a ton of people out there that would love to have some!

Hope I've been of some help!

Edit: Sometimes it is reffered to as the "wood hair" or "chocolate tube" slime mold

So what's climbing on glass in the last pic? Looks like "it" eating mycelium.

It's a slime mold... they move around, a lot. It spread up the glass, as far as I can tell, because of the moisture on it. It's not eating the mycellium, if anything it's eating the substrate the mycellium was grown on.

Ah-hah!  I thought it looked like a slime mold.

They're really neat -- your friend could probably actually sell bits of this to enthusiasts.  :wink:

A slime mold is a kind of protozoan that acts like a giant amoeba sometimes and then like a fungus other times.  The spores land and then hatch into little amoeba things.  Then these get together, and either fuse into one GIANT amoeba with millions of nuclei, or become a multicellular 'slug.'  This slowly crawls around eating various things until it gets a little dry or runs out of food, and then it starts to fruit -- running up those spore stalks.

They're not a health threat, though I wouldn't eat 'em.
