In the forest of the Twickel castle in Delden a lot of fungi grow. Also very rare species they told me. I do not know which one (or more) this is. Anyone??

Hi Willem.
In this case, you could post a workshop with a closer view, otherwise is very difficult to be sure.
If I am not mistaken, this could be a Lycogala epidendrum. This are amazing creatures, in fact they are not fungi, you should change your Category to Protocista (Slime moulds) :)
If you want to know some more about slime moulds, I posted a large post HERE with some info and a link to Clive´s [fungiman] web page, where he has a wonderful explanation and fotos.
This shot is very clear and detailed, with good composition and colours. Thanks very much for sharing and welcome to TN.

This is great, the tree is covered! I would agree with Felipe on the ID as I found some of this myself last year (nothing good enough to post though). It's amazing when it's this colour, but goes through lots of different variations throughout it's short life, ending in black I think?
Thanks for sharing and welcome to TN.

Hi Willem,
I agree with Felipe. Your good photo shows Lycogala epidendrum (Buxbaum ex Linneo 1753) Fries 1829. This specie belongs to the Myxomycetes class and it grows on dead wood. In Italy it is very common in all seasons.
According to some mycologists, Myxomycetes class doesn't belong to the fungi kingdom but it has to be included in the protozoa kingdom.

Ha Willem,

Zeer bijzondere foto. Gelukkig nog een aantal mensen die er alles vanaf weten. ('K heb weer wat geleerd)De Close-up vind ik ook erg mooi.
