Like many of the not-so-well documented specimens from these surveys (the methods and practices of which get a little more refined/comprehensive each season) this one will sit in the back of the digital filing cabinet until a sufficient quality and/or quantity of hydnoid fungi come along for this sad specimen to merit further attention.

As Christian said, knowing what this mushroom was growing from would help a great deal with identification.

That little seedling on the bottom right in the photo looks like a baby conifer – was it on a cone of some sort? Otherwise I’d say Hydnum.

like an auriscalpium on steroids!
