I noticed this row of bumps on a fallen pine log. I’m not sure if this is an old “carbon balls” fungus or not.

makes round blobs when it’s leaking.
shows dry resin, blackened on the outside – and yellow, still not quite dry.
This is what’s called amber when it’s become a fossil.
I don’t tend to carry a saw around with me. :) So what does make round nodules on pine?
You should have tried to cut through it..
You don’t think so? I dismissed it at first, but when I looked more closely I saw that the bumps were nearly perfectly spherical. The one photo may not show that very clearly though.
I guess no fungus at all, just dry resin.
