It turned rock hard when I dried it

So maybe some molds dry differently? Or perhaps the ID is wrong? Or maybe Lycogala flavofuscum needs to be moved into a new genus? I have the material if anyone wants to work on it.

Just read the obs from 2010.

If this is a Lycogala, then if some material is left in-situ, would it not morph into a more advanced (for lack of better word) state of slime?
