Amorphous apparent fungus attached to tree litter along hiking trail
Pacific Northwest montane mixed coniferous and deciduous forest ecosystem
Spotted along Indian Trail in Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park near Issaquah. Essentially shapeless ; it appears to be spreading--note the delicate, filigree-like extension on the right. Or I may be completely wrong and this is not a fungus at all, but something else, perhaps an egg cluster.
