This unusual specimen was discovered in my front yard (in Northeast Ohio) growing beneath a small shrub.
Now this doesn't look like the typical garden variety 'shroom I'm accustomed to seeing. Can anyone identify this particular species? Any help at all is appreciated. If this is just a regular, boring, unnoteworthy, commonplace species, then I give my apologies in advance.

I have never seen anything like that before. I get all kinds of fungus in my backyard because of the big tree I cut down and now the roots are rotting. I usually get hundreds of very small mushrooms grouped very close together, a rock hard brain looking thing (that breaks apart like plaster when I hit it with the lawn mower), or medium sized mushrooms about six inches apart. They come in late spring and disappear in the summer heat.

From the title of this thread, I was expecting a picture of your foot or something similar.
From the actual picture I was going to posit that you had found examples of the very rare fungus hooterus, usually found in groupings of 2, very tasty, but sometimes you can get a bad reaction from handling them.
