Slime Mould?

The growth on wood and general appearance and texture to me suggests a dried out aethalium. I’ve seen things like this on old logs before. You have another slime mould observation (164472) from the same general location on the same day (suggesting habitat and climate is good for it). I don’t know enough about slime moulds to suggest anything close to species level.

Depending on your definition it may or may not be “fungi” then…
