Looking forward. But you will see that you will need a lot of practice ;)

No info indeed

Indeed I don’t have any other info on this than these pics.
I was most likely on beech though.
For this years’ hunt I’ll be equipped with chemicals and a microscope :)

I do not really believe it is Ceratiomyxa.

This is just one of many possible options.
But without further informations, better pictures and micro features this will remain a “Fungi” or maybe “Corticiaceae”. I sincerely doubt Deuteragenie has any information on this. Beginners never do that.

I don’t believe Ceratiomyxa leaves this persistent of tissue around, at any stage of development. As Noah once said, it’ll melt if you look at it wrong. There appear to be thick, hairy bundles of hyphae surrounding the margins of this thing.

just saw it now. It is not easy to detect for the photo is not that good. Firstly which wood? It is hardwood but which one?
Secondly was this hard or soft?

If it is soft I think it is the common myxomycete Ceratiomyxa fruticulosa.
If it is hard it is a Corticiaceae but then I would need more info.

Is there a useful online reference and/or key to help me try to recognize this ?
