Spotting

Description:

Jackrogersella or Hypoxylon I think. Black ball-shaped fungi that have a bumpy appearance. I cut one in half and saw the inside had little spherical air bubbles in it, and the texture was somewhat like charcoal.

Habitat:

On an old oak log that had fallen to the ground. Some fire ants made a large nest under and around it. Bearhead Hammock Recreational Area

Sukanya, they are both in the family Hypoxylaceae for sure, but definitely different species.
