I have no idea

what that is. Not a paraphysis or anything that belongs to the fungus.
A millipede?

thanks.

so that beaded structure is a paraphysis?

Have a look

at picture 192124. They are 60-90 microns long (75 in that picture), with 0-7 septa depending on maturity, but mostly 3 or 7.

what do the mature spores look like?

No mature spores – but the paraphyses look right for glutinosum.

microscopy added.

I hope you’ll let us see pictures of spores and paraphyses too..
