These two specimens (connected) were lying on the ground as if an animal had possibly dug them up. Have no idea where they were located originally (soil or wood). Not damaged however, but certainly not fresh.

Thanks for your input. I am going to a mushroom class on Saturday. I’ll take along the dried specimen. Maybe someone will take a look and offer suggestions.
