Must just be coincidence that mine didn't reappear after purging the spot!  I saw no evidence of the tentacles (vines/strings) piercing the hosts of the rather large mass I found.  Mine was a darker yellow than the one in the picture I forwarded, more of a gold and less curled.  Since I bagged and trashed every tiny piece I found, I figured that was why it didn't recur.  Wrong again!  Oh, me!  Good thing I can handle being wrong!  LOL!
