Who: Dianna Smith

No specimen available

Does this look familiar to anyone? It’s a Hydnellum or something toothed, anyway. The hymenium is medium to darker gray. The cap side is black in the center and edged in white. The texture is somewhat velvety. These could be very young specimens. They measures just 3" in diameter, were lightly attached to the soil growing under a mix of young birch trees and older oaks.
