Magic Mushroom?


I found this very strange fungus growing in my yard. At first I thought it was a piece of trash, but when I went to pick it up, I noticed it was attached. For some reason, it reminds me of the surface of the moon, although I've never been there. It certainly doesn't look like something you'd want to eat!

If anyone is good at identifying fungi, I'd love some insight. Or maybe a link to someplace where I could get more info.

I'm not good with names at all, so I can't help you there. But that is one creepy-looking mushroom! Looks like something an alien would eat. ;-)

It looks interesting. Did you finally find out what kind of fungi it is? Is it edible?
