Observation 97554: Metatrichia vesparium (Batsch) Nann.-Bremek. ex G.W. Martin & Alexop.

Red fuzzy mass with honeycomb on a stem; 1st photo, though blurry appears to be myxo fruit bodies prior to rupture. I don’t know if the ants are moving this around or just excavating it and making a mass surrounding their exit hole (two seen in photo #3).
