Hi SukanyaDatta, what an awesome spotting. I think it might be an assassin bug. Acanthaspis petax is an assassin bug that carries the corpses of its ant victim on its back. I believe the assassin bug does this to mask its scent.

Interesting find, Machi. To me they look like decayed birch polypore specimens (Piptoporus betulinus).

It could very well be, Tristan. To be honest I am not familiar with black knot fungi, I only know it from online photos and read that it affects Prunus trees. It's just that in photo 3 I believe I see slime trails, which makes me think it's a slime mold.

Great spotting, Tristan. I think it's a slime mold, perhaps Badhamia utricularis, but that's just a wild guess.
