Members of the kingdom Myxomycota are the plasmodial or true slime moulds. The individuals group together to form patches of wet slime on fallen logs, with many nuclei in a continuous sheet of cytoplasm. The patches do not move bodily but may grow in one direction. When conditions become drier, they may form a mound from which stalked sporangia grow, and from which single-celled offspring emerge
