I have not idea what it is and where to look for this “blob” in mushroom literature. Obviously, it is growing on wood. The surface texture is reminiscent of orange peel.

Compare to observation 7716.

This specimen looks really smooth, but I think the appearance is consistent with medium-late stage Tubifera ferruginosa.

Not sure..

Tubifera don’t have this aspect.
