A. sarcoides is pretty common where I live and am very used to recognizing it. The color appears to match. I will keep an eye out for this. I would have expected anamorph to be much smaller than the telemorph. This is smaller, but it is still what I would loosely call macro fungi. It is easy to see with your eye.

Of course

this is just the anamorph of Ascocoryne sarcoides.
Usually you will find a good description of the anamorph too on sites dealing with ascomycetes if they are known.

Pirobasidium sarcoides = Ascocoryne sarcoides?

And I don’t know… this is not so gelatinous, are you sure? Can anyone give me a description of this “anamorphical stage” ?

I would call it
