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!
