Looks like an Asco. Now that you mentioned it, I found some more photos online.

changing this to Polycephalomyces tomentosus as the main ob would be preferable as your picture shows this very clearly, and resolution is great.

Polycephalomyces tomentosus is a Myxomyceticolous fungi that grows on Trichlales. I think Stephenson describes them as Hyphomycetes…

I should probably name this photo after whatever’s eating H.serpula, but I don’t know what it is :-(
