    I had someone call me and request service. I went and looked at the lawn.
    It was zoysia and seemed to have a fungus. Parts of it were dark grey and some black. Has anyone seen this stuff on zoysia. I have never seen this type before.

    Sounds like slime mold. Appearw in hot whumid or rainy weather. Not serious--scrub it off with a stiff broom.

    Like Riggle said, it sounds like Slime Mold.

    Fortunately, slime molds do not really harm the grass. However, if the growth is abundant, it may suffocate grass plants and cause turf to thin out. Control this fungus by simply sweeping it off the grass with a broom or washing it off with a garden hose.
