Pink Goo
Bio-goo would be slightly different - any kind of bio-nanotech swarm could be described as bio-goo, and so could an algal bloom or an invasive species such as rabbits or knotweed.

Biont-goo is derived from the term describing a biological sophont, and specifically refers to swarms of sophonts replicating out of hand (together with their support infrastructure). This has happened a few times in the history of the Terragen Shere, but in most cases the population of a sohont species is self-regulating - no-one wants to live in a overcrowded world, so (given the choice) the sophonts will tend to move away or stop reproducing.
