It is one of countless "slime molds". Likely, it isn't hurting anything. They eat bacteria that would, otherwise, cause infection to your plants and soil. They are an indication that your soil may remain just a little too moist, as their bacteria food is present.

Fungicides, and letting the soil dry out, thoroughly, will solve the issue.
