small spherical knobbly growths, woody and hard to the touch, growing on surface of bark, on felled wood that lay on woodland floor.
Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
It looks a bit like the King Alfred's Cakes fungus, in which case it might be worth editing this observation so that it appears in the Fungi group for further confirmation.

Cut the spheres. If they contain concentric rings it is King Alfred's Cakes. If it has no specific structure it will be a Hypoxylon. What is the tree species?
I'm unsure what tree species this was growing on. If they are King Alfred's Cakes, then I presume they must be very immature, because they were only about 5-10mm across. I now think this may be Hypoxylon, possibly H.fragiforme (Beech Woodwart).
