Taffy-like white fungus?

Asked July 9, 2018, 9:53 PM EDT

I found this on a long-dead pine tree that has been lying on the ground. It’s about 8” x 6” and looks exactly like pulled taffy. I’m interested in an ID. Thanks!

This does not look like a fungus to our expert. We suspect that it is some kind of man-made substance, similar to caulk. It seems to have extruding striations.
