    It looks like one but I am not sure. It was on the same tree trunk as the wolf’s milk slime mold.

    Was it yellow at any time before the photos? ie previous day. If so then very good chance its wolf.

    Then possibly Ceratiomyxa porioides.

    Agreed Ceratiomyxa - lovely critter!
    Likely Ceratiomyxa fruticulosa given the "fingers" as C. poroides is a more honeycombed shape.
