nice spotting

RiekoS, your spot is a gall caused by an insect, and the young insects have already hatched out of the gall you found. This one is caused by a fungus and no insects are involved, only fungus spores emerge from this one.

I wonder if your spot is similar or same as mine....

Not a mushroom, but a type of fungus. I removed this from the Mushroom Mapping mission and added the Wikipedia link.
