Hemitrichia calyculata?

It could be, but I’ve been watching these for several years now, and I’ve never seen one mature into a yellow fuzz ball. They just turn brown after a few days and melt away.

I’ve been calling them Cherry Head slime. They measure only three or four mm from top to bottom, and they grow on well rotted hardwood logs covered in moss, usually in a shady hollow near a small stream. I have seen the yellow fuzz cone slime in the same general area as the cherry heads, but never on the same log. They are pretty common in late spring.
