Three distinct types of plasmodia are illustrated and compared. The physaraceous type is easily visible when mature, and forms a fleshy fan in the advancing portion. The stemonitoid type is delicate and transparent, macroscopically invisible up to the time of fruiting. The third type always remains microscopic, and never forms a reticulum of veins.
