@Maxine: It is found on a rotten piece of wood ... Don't be mislead by the actual size of the image ... The little "horns" are just 1 or 2 mm in hight ... An interesting page on the species can be found at https://www.messiah.edu/oakes/fungi_on_wood/club%20and%20coral/species%20pages/Ceratiomyxa%20fruticulosa.htm
