fungus? mold?

Asked September 15, 2020, 3:09 PM EDT

I found this in a weedy site meant for a native planting. Do I sterilize tool, gloves, etc. or is all OK? Either way, what is it? It looks like a 'snow' pad one would use for Christmas decorating. Many thank yous.

We have not been able to determine what this is from your photos. We did try reaching out to a group that specializes in fungi, but we did not receive an answer. It does not look like any type of plant pathogen with which we are familiar, but we cannot say for sure what it is.
