Notes:

We purchase fill dirt and now with fall approaching with more rain we noticed this stuff growing like a bloom of green blob. It doesn’t look like a plant or fungus, but we are worried about it multiplying and being hazardous to our 2 year old child and pets. Poking at it, it looks like thick goo. It is buried partly, found some that was about 8 inches round on surface and 4+ inches deep. Please help identify and how do we eliminate it?

    Hi TaniSirgar, appreciate the feedback. I hope you will be able to get it ID soon. I would still try to contact the experts at the Puget Sound Mycological Society, they also have a Facebook page. Maybe they could put your worry at rest. Best wishes! http://www.psms.org/id-clinics.php

    Hi Laura, The like describes our blob exactly but there was no resolution. My wife works at a local college with a hordicultral department. I wI’ll check the other like also. My concern is that it was in the fill dirt that I have distributed around my home. We see it in 4 different locations now.

    Hi Dough, I don’t know what it is but check out the link below with interesting discussion of a weird looking growth. Keep scrolling down for more posted images. You could try the folks at the Puget Sound Mycological Society (mushroom society chapter for WA) for its correct ID. Best wishes! http://forums.botanicalgarden.ubc.ca/threads/slime-mold-yuck.52689/
