I know of no currently identified Scleroderma which exists on living wood, only those of terrestrial habitat forming mycorrhizae with nearby trees. Might be something similar to the Australian mycorrhizal species, which have been found growing on the sides of trees up to 30 meters off the ground.

It’s growing on a live tree trunk.

Similar to Scleroderma geaster

But looks like it’s growing on a tree trunk rather than the ground?
