Sam showed it to me years ago, the little strings of round spores. It’s very common in the northeast but rarely gets ID’ed.

Good ID Noah, I remember reading

I’m no expert on Nectria, but I’m pretty sure I’ve seen this fungus before. Compare to observation 18097 and observation 16183. Darv called one of those obs Nectria, and that is what I have been calling this stuff ever since. It’s pretty common in my area. The tiny spheres are rarely found still intact. They are usually smeared and slimy as seen here.

Dacrymyces, from what I have seem of them, usually hold themselves together a little better.


observation 67368 by pq_harvey looks like the same stuff.
