no argybee, i think it's more likely a actual fungi, something kinda phlebia radiata (but not P.radiata) try some kinds of (jelly)-crust fungi

"argy" of "bee"i of must it together. I like you: it seems your are a music-loving, natur-loving, allways FUNNY person.!!! very sympatic. :) . i will look the next days at some of your not-id fungi. maybe (i hope) i can help you a bit.I find it completly ok. this stuff has lived long enough next to us without us asking questions about it. !!!! pleurotes could soak up oil-pollution from water,use it as nutrition and is afterwards still edible !!!!

No problems Alex. Thanks for your comments. We did discuss it for quite a while and thought did cross my mind that one of the local joggers had over-exerted themselves after breakfast 8>() But this was well off the track. Also it was ONLY on the log (ie no spatter nor directional indicators 8>() and looked like it had some 'grip' on it... ie it seemed to have chosen it's resting place. (I can't believe I'm discussing this stuff :)

weird- something like that,: i always stay some minutes before it, asking myself: is it slime mold? is it fungi? or dead animal ! . i Think it's too young, on the other hand, if it is gone by tommorow, could it really was a slime mold. sorry can not help here !!
