This was found on Vancouver Island, on a hillside, in the moss…I found several and would like to dye with this if possible…it is a tooth fungus, and very large with large stipe and smooth dry dark cap…any help here

Recognized by sight: Because it was found on Vancouver Island, I assume it was under Sitka Spruce. If under Pines it could be a darkish B. grisea.

The one turned upside down looks like it has pores, not teeth. It would help if you posted several more pictures showing all the details. Boletopsis leucomelaena is my first thought.
