Slime mold. Myxomycete. All together measures just a few milimeters, in this case 5-10 mm. The last picture was been taken one month later. You can see how the peridium (the skin that covers the sporocarp) is broken ans is liberatin the spores.
Under a dead pine trunk.
The picture is upside down since it grows in the lower side of a fallen tree. Camera Model: NIKON D300. Exposure Time: 1/60 sec.; f/32; ISO Speed Rating: 200. Focal Length: 90.0 mm. Flash fired

Gracias Nuria, estaba debajo de un tronco de pino semipodrido. Y no es un hongo, es un myxomyceto, o moho mucilaginoso
