I’m totally lost on this one. Baby anemone polyps? Eggs? Tiny tunicates? They are not quite as squishy as they look, stiff enough to hold their shape, but can be gently tilted around the base.

A princípio pareceu uma mosca, mas hoje olhando melhor, vi que podem ser abelhas, mas nunca vi dessa cor... alguém sabe a identificação?

@leigh_winsor Oh my! This one was over 80 mm long extended (see extra photos next to 80 mm ruler, though not fully extended in the photo). Darker, greyish head had a paler tip, but otherwise a uniform light pink color. Found on the underside of a small conifer log in an urban public garden. When placed in a bag and flipped over, you could see a small white oval (maybe a meal?) in the middle - look for the photo with the red arrow pointing towards it.

Wild guess on the ID since this genus has not been recorded before in California on iNat.

I also have video if anyone is interested.

Collected it in 95% ethanol (thank you @seaslugin) in case anyone is interested in sequencing or whatever, please message me.

Ruled out Turkey Tail based on shape of pores. Light-colored spore print after 4 hours, spores shown at 400x magnification. This fungus lives in my wood pile, so if there’s any other tests I can run or photos needed to ID I’m happy to supply. I’d love to find out what this is!
