Polysphondylium pallidum is a slime mold which lives in soil, dung, leaf litter and other decaying organic materials and feeds on bacteria and fungal spores. In favorable damp conditions, it may reproduce sexually while in drier conditions asexual reproduction is more likely.

The genome sequence was published in 2011 along with that of a second slime mold, Dictyostelium fasciculatum. The P. pallidum genome is around 30 Mb in size and displays conventional telomere organization and strongly reduced numbers of transposable elements when compared to the genome of the most studied slime mold, Dictyostelium discoideum.
