Welcome to Gardening Forums

Yep, my first thought was a Slime Mold.

We have lots of fungal growth here during the rainy season. Some are mushrooms but the fungus is pretty small to be considered mushroom. What we do is to clean the bark of the tree and the branches of the plant that is infested with fungus. As a parasite, fungus can kill plants because it sips the nutrients of its host. As a pest, fungus should be eradicated at first sight.

I'm a new member here. Lately I've had the beginning of a mushroom infestation growing in parts of a 100 sq. foot area, just here and there. Below is a photo of the worst cluster, which is about the same volume as a regulation football. Any advice on how to thwart future mushrooms (after I remove these) ?
