White candy floss like fungus on dead branches.
Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
This looks to me more like "Ice flowers". Was it found after a cold night?
You could be correct, looking at link the frost beard looks like a very similar structure. It was a relatively cold night as I remember. On touch it did not feel particularly icey but the crystals would have been very fine. If seen again I will give it more than the cursory attention I did on the first occassion.
I agree with Flaxton. See my comment on http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/101373.

Yes, it's ice - see http://www.ispotnature.org/node/390753
and the one above
I believe it to be quite rare in this form - common on moist ground.
John (barnbrock) if you are still active then add a few notes to Description via edit, which may have the effect of renewing interest. In any case it's a worthy thing to do.
This appears to be one of only three such observations and merits some more attention (in my opinion).
Also an interesting choice now occurs regarding Group - it should, correctly, Other Organisms.
