Sorry Debbie.. I have no notes if it was hard or not but definitely growing on conifer leaf litter.. I had thought of Xylaria but could not find resembling examples.. except.. the dead man’s fingers.. but that’s under hardwoods..

not cordyceps…

unless you saw them growing out of an insect host.

were the fruit bodies hard or fragile? they have the look of one of the Xylarias…

These look like a slime mold. Something to show the scale in size would help. So, are these actually very small?
