it looked gray brown. My photos don’t reflect it. The white teeth on the underside caught me by surprise.

This fungi is quite common in southern Australia, though it is usually grey on the upper surface and almost white below http://steveaxford.smugmug.com/...
Interesting to see a north American specimen.
