Observation 235081: Fungi Bartl.

These whitish filaments appeared a couple of days after observing the yellow substance (last two photos). It was found on a decaying log near a lake. The yellow substance was taken home and kept in a plastic container with a lid for further observation. Have no idea what the yellow “glob” is. It was sliced open when found and there were no gills, pores, etc. Was not rubbery, but soft enough to be sliced. I am guessing that the whitish filaments are fungal. Any comments appreciated.


Beneath the filaments is one-half of the yellow substrate now turned brown still attached to the original wood.
Unknown – about 2.5-3.0 cm.
Point of attachment

the threads might be zygomycetes. the yellow may not be fungal. they should be in separate posts.
