Caption

Slime mould fruiting bodies. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of fruiting bodies (sporangia) of the slime mould Diachea leucopodia. The outer walls (peridia, blue/brown) of the sporangia will burst, releasing spores (not seen). Slime moulds are not fungi, but a separate group with complex life cycles. The sporangia are produced when the slime mould encounters unfavourable conditions. Magnification: x35 at 6x7cm size.
