I found this species association on the bark of a very rotten tree (Silver Birch?) trunk lying in contact with the wet mud of a partly dried up pond. The lower edge of the section of bark with the colonies was just touching the wet mud.

The sporangia of the slime mould have grown around some colonies of rather angular green jelly. I have found such jelly before and believe it to be a Nostoc species, probably N. commune. I found much larger colonies before, not in any such association:

Some shots were taken in habitat but after the bark bearing the mixed colonies had been detached. Further images were shot at home, on two days, where I could control lighting. I have posted a large number of the images, as this seems to be a rather rare find. (It is also my first find of T. favogenia).

The camera was Olympus EM-1 in manual mode. The lenses were various combinations of: Olympus 4/3 x2TC, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, Raynox MSN-202 supplementary or, for higher magnification: Schneider HM 40mm reversed on Kiron x2TC. Triple TTL RC flash.

The stereos are crosseye.

I have corrected the species name from Trichia favogenia to that of the related species Trichia persimilis. The former name was tentatively given in the field. Having examined microscopic details, Mike Harrison confirmed it as the latter species.

Interestingly, having found no images of such an association for T favogenia, I find there is at least one for T. persimilis, the author seemingly unaware of the significance:

I had something like that growing in the back of my fridge last year. Who knew it was so rare! Seriously though, that is very interesting to see and read about.
