I get the feeling these exudates could be secondary metabolites that are produced by H. fragiforme, they have been studied extensively for their antimicrobial and nematicidal properties along with many other biologically active properties.

I’m pretty sure the host is Hypoxylon fragiforme. What about the little red balls? Nectria maybe?
