So what is that on the bottom board?

I got this picture from one of the members of my association.

Well I see some propolized invaders (large globs), clumps of wax/honey droppings, and the prints from "muddy" feet.  In otherwords, a normal solid bottom board.

That was my thinking also but I wanted to get some extra opinions just to be sure.  Thank you.

I always figured propolis, but then propolis often has wax mixed in...
