    Found on a dead log lying on the ground of a slope.
    Surely it will need a microscope for ID. Size around
    3mm for most of the blobs. Last ID request for the
    day ! Thank you for all the missions !

    Hi David - Yes there are a greater number of species amongst the jellies with small or tiny fruiting bodies, so positive ID would require some work. However, it is possible that this is Dacrymyces stillatus. Do you know if the log was a conifer?

    Don't know much about trees !
    The "log" is quite smooth on the surface, very dark brown in colour.
    Guess it might be very hard wood.
