Cherry-Head slime

Could this be a branch of hemitrichia evolving into a gastroid form? It looks similar to yellow fuzz cone slime, but it never breaks out into fuzz; it just comes up cherry red, and then fades away.

No further development after the red stage. They just turn brown and fade away. See last two photos, taken two days later.

they are rife but not ripe:)
Have you ever seen a sporulating stage of them? This looks like a plasmodial stage to me; a possible genus could be Badhamia or Trichia.
