They look like mesenterial filaments to me. Do you see them actually releasing, free from the adult? I have seen pictures and movies of Discosoma reproduction and you can clearly see round eggs. Interesting. :)

no, I couldn't see it released , unfortunatelly.
process is relatively slow, about 48 hrs. I suppose it was released previously as it disappeared but who knows maybe it was sucked back it the mushroom?
anyway, right now I see it second time and it is the same mushroom is doing that.

Yeah, I think they are mesenterial filaments then. Here is a video I found on YouTube, it shows little green eggs!
