Distorted Strobilomyces?

This is a really wild guess. I haven’t collected much in the south and never in Georgia, so this might be familiar to someone from that area. The dark color and pore like surface remind me of Strobiliomyces and it seems to be fruiting in your area. The general look seems simlar to what happens when Xerocomus species get infected with Hypomyces chrysospermum. However, it could well be something completely different.
