    On the right side are 2 slime molds (each about 4-5mm) for sizing.
    Don't know if the orange and the greyish blue flake-like things are
    the same, and not sure if they are all fungi.
    Kindly take a look and enlighten please. Thank you.

    It is not possible to confirm ID on the orange and grey "discomycetes" without microscopy, but I can provide at least a potential ID:
    The grey looks a lot like Mollisia e.g. M. cinerea ... and my brain is not coughing up the genus of the other one right now, so I will have to reply again later when I recall (maybe with morning coffee brain) ... it is a genus with some interestingly predatory anamorphs.

    Too bad no fungi collection is permitted at Rmd Nature Park,
    else I take some home and have a go with my dust covered microscope.
    Received an adaptor for DSLR and haven't really work on it yet.

    Ah there we go coffee helps: Orbilia sp. Again, not possible to ID without micro, but it does look very much like an Orbilia.
