Appreciate the correction. I think I have actually seen Lycogala in other spots before – I will have to look to see if I can find a picture.

There have been other obs. that turned out to be plants. http://mushroomobserver.org/observer/observation_search?pattern=plantae
In addition there are many pics of parastic plants like indian pipes and squaw root.

Should it be taken down if it is a plant?

Really? What is it?

is soft and gooey inside. It does not grow overlapped like this and does not have the pale colors.
