both Metetrichia vesparium and Hemitrichia clavata or H. intorta all winter. I would think that a possiblilty. One needs a microscope to be sure between clavata and intorta.

Myxogastria sp.

I think we would need a better photo to be able to suggest a species but going on the idea that most myxo photos that turn up on MO are common species. I would suggest from the colour its from the Trichiaceae family and the well formed peridium cup makes me think of Hemitrichia calyculata.
