Red thread

Question from Peter Foster

Recently my lawn was dotted with what at first glance looked like small blobs of candy loss. On closer examination these blobs were found to have a jelly-like consistency. Viewing under a hand-held microscope revealed a red thread-like structure protruding from the main body which had the appearance of a tiny Chinese lantern flower. Could this be Corticium disease?
