Is it shaving foam fungus?

Asked July 20, 2016, 1:23 PM EDT

Something ugly has started showing up in 2 different beds in my garden. I've attached pictures. It starts out looking like shaving cream foam but by the 2nd or 3rd day it is brown ( 20160720_081237.jpg). I think it may be coming from the mulch? How can I get rid of it without spreading it further? Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

This looks like slime mold or sometimes called dog vomit fungus. If you do not like it, shovel it up and send it off to the dump. It is common in mulch. vw
