White stems with spherical fruiting bodies (sporangia?). The white covering cracks open and falls off, revealing the brown, fuzzy capillitium.

My best guess would be a Physarum and P. globuliferum would likely be a good contender but it could also be a Didymium species. Did you notice any white lime nodes among the capillitium?

Not sure what they would look like, little white spots? Are they microscopic?
