    Can't say for sure without a spore print, but take a look at Pluteus petastus...

    Oyster Mushroom?

    This looks to me like a winter oyster, Pleurotus Ostreatus. I've been finding a lot of these in may area lately, and they're delicious. You can tell by the decurrent gills (extending down the stipe), as well as by color, smell, etc. Winter oysters are often dark brown or grey on top. (Summer oysters, pleurotus pulmonarius, are white) The best way to be sure though, is a spore print - stick it on a black piece of paper overnight and you should get a white spore print.

    I tried these for the first time this year. One of my new faves. Nice find! Was this taken recently? I was finding them back in mid June.
