I saw eight or ten of this type of mushroom growing around our barn and pasture late this fall. They are a fairly large mushroom. I’m wondering if these aren’t edible, although I haven’t looked them up in my field guide yet.

The texture and the way the dark-colored outer skin tears and gets shaggy as the cap grows and opens is interesting to see with a macro lens.

Slugs, snails, insects or mice took some nips out of the top, which you can see if you look closely.
