    Don't know if these are fungi or slime molds.
    Size about 4-5mm. Embedded in moss on the
    side of a fallen log in Rmd Nature Park.
    Springy to touch. I didn't press harder for fear
    of squeezing out fluid inside (feels like fluid).
    These days I err on the side of being ignorant
    than missing something !

    Egg casings for some invertebrate?

    The problem with Rmd Nature Park is collecting is illegal.
    So I can't bring it home and follow up at leisure. Despite
    the marking I left, and even if left undisturbed, I cannot
    guarantee I can relocate it next time.
