Perhaps Fuligo septica (a slime mould) or perhaps something produced by an invertbrate.

Possibly Reticularia intermedia.
Suggestion only for species as one found recently in Wadbilliga National Park.
These are an egg shaped globular lump on wood which can be as large as an egg sometimes even larger, usually with a distinct perimeter evident extending beyond the main fruit. This is the hypothalus and extends below and beyond the egg. The spores are deep brown in mass mustardy by transmitted light, banded-reticulated globose, 9.0-9.5┬Ám in diameter. Often found on wood, sometimes on dead wood. One of the few myxomycetes one can 'see' from some distance away.
