They are the right size for Nectria cinnabarina then – but I’m not prepared to bet on it. I haven’t ever studied them this close, and I’m not sure if it’s the only Nectria species with such conidia stages.

the fruit bodies are quite small. You can see the branch they are growing from in the last photo. I could fit my hand almost all the way around the branch.

Guessing ascomycete

Looks more like a conidia-producing stage of an ascomycete, possibly Nectria with that colour. It reminds of Nectria cinnabarina, but I’m not used to see them with such long stalks. It’s also difficult to decide the size of the fruitbodies.

Young Wolf’s slime?

Could be very young Wolf’s slime (sorry, forgotten the scientific name, but might be something like Lycogala).
