I think there's a good chance this is badhamia utricularis.
see https://sarahlloydmyxos.wordpress.com/2020/06/07/badhamia-utricularis-2020/
Also its worth looking at other photos and sites with a search in images: https://www.google.com/search?surl=1&q=badhamia+utricularis&tbm=isch&ved=2ahUKEwju08iL7OL4AhUrgGMGHQMmAxQQ2-cCegQIABAA&oq=badhamia+utricularis&gs_lcp=CgNpbWcQARgAMgUIABCABDoECAAQHlC5CViWCmDVE2gAcAB4AIABmwGIAcoDkgEDMC4zmAEAoAEBqgELZ3dzLXdpei1pbWfAAQE&sclient=img&ei=fcHEYq6hMquAjuMPg8yMoAE&bih=937&biw=1920&rlz=1C1GCEA_enAU894AU894&hl=en-GB

This sighting is similar to these: Trichiales (Order) and https://canberra.naturemapr.org/sightings/4344821. All show pendant fruitbodies, as you see in Badhamia utricularis. However, the myxomycetes in these sightings have bright, brownish-yellow spore masses (there are a few broken spore capsules in your sighting, with spores showing). Badhamia spores are blackish brown. In the first photo of fhttps://sarahlloydmyxos.wordpress.com/2020/06/07/badhamia-utricularis-2020/ you see that the mature fruitbodies are blue-grey, not the brown shades in the CNM sightings.

Thanks very much for this ID. Its not easy for me with things like slime moulds as the information is sparse and hard to find.
