Lycogala epidendrum

Wolf's-milk Slime

Just to give you an idea of how difficult identification of mushrooms can be - I checked five guides and found this mushroom in only one guide, even though that guide listed it as widely distributed in North America.

So that's what this fungus is called. I found this awhile back growing on a downed pine tree, photographed it but was unable to id it. Looks like you did it for me. Thanks!

That is a slime mold; it is not actually a mushroom or a fungus, which is why it did not show up in the guides.
