I found these bumpy red berries on low-growing plants growing wild in my lawn. They look kind of like wild strawberries, but they are rounder with more pronounced bumps. Do you have any ideas as to the species and edibility? These grew in summer, in Upstate New York State.

They look like mock strawberries. Duchesnea indica. They are edible (if they are truly mock strawberries), but not as tasty as real strawberries.
