You very well could be right. Thanks for the help. You are a great resource.

I believe it is the stroma of this mushroom.

Compare Lasiosphaeria ovina which has a white felt too.

The fuzz…

I thought that this was a Myxogastria being attacked by a fungus at first but I’ve been looking at the images closely and it looks like this is all one fruiting body. If you look there are parts that are filled with the white felt but it is spreading apart where the balls are fully formed. the white is mainly present near the edge surrounding the growth the center is barren. This was the same for the other growths of this on the log. The balls all have openings on the top and white mycelium fuzz pressed against the surface surrounding to hole as if they pushed through the fuzz.

is also which I am thinking of.
No Corticiaceae here I think unless the white felt isn’t one overgrowing the pyrenomycetes. But I guess this white mat belongs to the ascomycete.
