I know it must be a contam, but that actually looks like a chemical reaction ... God Damn!

I'd say throw it away, but hold onto it despite my advice. Take a picture when this bizzare life form has manifested the entire bowl.

yea it doesnt look good to me either, just wondering what type of contam it is, i put it aside and am gonna check on it tommorow, i just hope it didn't affect the other cakes, but we will see. I saw something in the contam faq about lipstick mold, uddno it looked pequliar to me, i;ve seen cobweb mold and green molds and stuff but never anything that looks like blood. But we will see

Look at this post and the contamination faq:

http://shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=Contams&Number=612047&page=3&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=1

We still don't know what it is, but it seems it is not so rare. I get this often when I clone from wild specimens. However it is easly overgrown by agressive species (like Flamullina velutipes) and I actually managed to purify my cultures after few transfers.

Funny cause I just threw out a jar yesterday with that same stuff. It smelled like an outhouse on hot summers day.
