Strange blob

Observed: 22nd May 2012 By: GreenGymGreenGym’s reputation in Fungi and Lichens
Soft white ball on grass
Pressed to reveal specks

This was attached to a stalk of grass a bit like giant cuckoo spit. It was 2-3cm long and had the consistency of whisked egg white or soft toothpaste, which gave way under light pressure revealing black specks. Not sure if these would be spores or eggs. There were several instances of this all around in the long grass.
