Keep monitoring this myxo- should start forming brown, dusty stems within the next 24 hours.
We found collections of small white clusters(just like yours here) last season in Olympia, WA on our way into a canopy- 4 hours later when we were heading back the stems had already formed!
Ours were Stemonitis fusca- which yours may be as well… Have to see it when mature tomorrow ;)
Really cool species-

Great pics!

Check out this attached time lapse video below of Stemonitis fruiting so you can see what to expect.
