This has been crossposted ten times as of my writing, in several cases to mycology specific subreddits such as r/mycology: https://old.reddit.com/r/mycology/comments/vjr7rl/what_is_this_does_this_belong_here/ That thread and this one in r/moldlyinteresting: https://old.reddit.com/r/MoldlyInteresting/comments/vjqyi9/found_in_a_house_in_eastern_oregon_high_desert/ both mention Stemonitis sp. as the likely culprit: >Stemonitis is a distinctive genus of slime moulds found throughout the world (except Antarctica). They are characterised by the tall brown sporangia, supported on slender stalks, which grow in clusters on rotting wood. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stemonitis Have faith in Redditors

LizardInASuit

Oh, I've known this one for so long! It's actually not that strange, it's a lovely type of indoor fungus. They are attracted to wet places, so there may have been a water leakage inside the walls or so. The house owners probably didn't know the rules on how to properly take care of the house, since this type of fungus usually grows in deserted places that have been given up. The ooze smells bad but no need to cry, it won't hurt anyone. That one's pretty big already. There's most likely more growing inside the walls, and the house owner should know what's been going on inside. If they're not blind they should be able to see it around the corners of the house. And if you're asking how I'm feeling about this? The only problem is that these guys won't easily give up their habitat, they are fully committed to their places, you usually don't get this from other fungi. So it won't give you up easily, but there are some methods to get rid of it. More info to make you understand: [They are called red ooze fungus, or ginger carpet.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ)

sagacious-lummox

"Many slime molds, mainly the "cellular" slime molds, do not spend most of their time in this state. When food is abundant, these slime molds exist as single-celled organisms. When food is in short supply, many of these single-celled organisms will congregate and start moving as a single body. " Gray goo confirmed

Slowly, but yeah, they can move.

It’s most likely a fungus, go to one of the mushroom ID’ing subs


ChunkofWhat

Found some google image results of similar, but not the same, looking molds: [1](https://images.app.goo.gl/FqHVFciFG9nEYxh78), [2](https://images.app.goo.gl/3dPfEC3kbqRkkfbs7), [3](https://images.app.goo.gl/JiDSmCZgiHwM5kP98). Hard to find the right search terms, or maybe this is an unusual mold. I would remove that switch plate and check things out. If mold, this growth should be attached to some wood or wet drywall, and there should be more of it back there. Otherwise my best guess is that someone with really weird hair got scalped in your home?

calm_chowder

> Paint and drywall isn't exactly the most nutrient dense food You'd be surprised... if it's a fungus, many of the commercially grown fungi out there are grown in sawdust so drywall is probably plenty nourishing. Some fungus (like oyster mushrooms) can thrive on almost anything, even toxic oil sludge. Many species (even some psilocybes) are happy af on cardboard. Ironically it's well known nutrient-poor substrates can actually make fungi grow *faster.* Fungi are incredible organism.... when they live outside and don't look like a Tribble on its period banging a wall outlet.

as a kid i had bad sinus issues and i remember once in class i had a really bad stuffy nose and at the same time a minor nose bleed then i sneezed so hard my eyes almost popped out and it shot this large snotty bloody mass out onto my desk it was kinda hard towards the center and some kids thought it was a chunk of brain (this was in 3rd grade so we all were pretty fucking stupid) and after it came out it felt better than an orgasm my god the relief, i went home and after a visit to the Otolaryngologist (ears nose n throat doctor) they found i had a severe infection and had them go in and suck out any fluid build ups and remove any other blockages or block build ups. anyways this kinda reminded me of that.
