I don’t think they are universal veils, but I could be wrong.
Slime molds interest me. They are single cell organisms that collect together and then form these structures to procreate.
The second set of images were taken about 24 hours after the first set.

Thank-You for the video; it was very interesting. Would those little “egg masses” be called a universal veil?
