Comments: No idea what could this pale-blue quite dense fibrous saliva be? It looked neither like a myxomicete nor like excrement. Possibly non-fungal. A kind of algae? To some extent similar to Trentepohlia aurea (except color, of course)? A few patches in the radius of half a meter (1.5 feet) found. Can anybody help in determination?
