beetle frass… I’ve never seen it this elaborate but then again I’m not looking for it.

This thing is clearly three-dimensional. Your hypothetical beetle would have to have left a trail in mid-air somehow, without it falling down!

not fungal…

Hemitrichia serpula usually lies flat on the substrate. It what you are showing us really a slime mould?

Slime mold is my guess. Slime molds turn to goo if you touch them (with a stick is preferred).
