In the past, slime molds were considered to be types of fungi, but as a result of recent revisions to the system of biological classification of living organisms, many authorities now consider them to be a distinct Kingdom of life, in the same way that animals, plants and fungi are all classified as separate Kingdoms of life.
This list has been compiled as a result of observations made by Trees for Life staff, and by Liz Holden, during her survey of fungi on the Estate. Some of the species identifications were confirmed by Professor Bruce Ing.
|Enteridium lycoperdon||A slime mold|
