Notes: this was found on a dry and crumbling redwood log; It had been touched to see what it was and it began growing these black “hairlike” projections which overnight turned into a solid mass of tarlike black “hairs”. I’d be interested in any comments.

Indeed it does but if you look at my next observation (posted today) you will see the progression. I thought it was something ghoulish when I saw it!
this looks like a dead insect ;)
a photograph that was not so close up might help here a little also… the columnella look like stemonitis, if a bit spaced out, and the said fusing together is typical. However I don’t recall ever witnessing the plasmodium hanging around at this stage. Usually it has dissipated completely. So don’t know who voted against it, but I wouldn’t rule this suggestion out.
It does also appear to look like a ‘scutllenia’ that has shrunken with some slime.
