Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. I am unable to see the mushroom in question. There are a few species in the genus Hydnum, so it is important to be sure that this is what you have. As far as who to report to, Mushroom Observer is a good website to post findings. This is a place to note what and where you find something. You might be surprised to find others in your area that have documented the species, as well!

There are several medicinal compounds within the fungus. Please do not consume it until you have done enough research to be comfortable doing so. Even then, I would seek dosage advice from published medical studied. PubMed may have some information on this subject.
