Do a search for mushroom and you will find several threads we've had on them.  I don't know the one you picture, but, most that I've found in the pine barrens are poisonous.

Photo in the link looks close.

Quite gnarly looking - ain't it!!

Anyone know if that Old Man of the Woods is a mycorrhizal fungi? Just curious.

I know this is an old post but I just found this black mushroom.
It's the first time I have seen one like this and I hunt for mushrooms.
So it's called Old Man of the Woods huh... Funny name.

No I sure don't ... But it looks like something that I don't think I would want to.

I would think I would have to really be hungry to eat something that looked like that.
