Fungus - Small (3mm), hard, black. Firmly attached to a fallen branch.
A whole bunch (100?) of these tasty things growing less than 100' N of the old turnpike. This is on Buchanan State Forest, so you can collect as much as you want as long as: "...gathered for one's own personal or family consumption." -from the State Forest Rules and Regulations.
These mushrooms were growing in some mud within the old tunnel portal facility at Sideling Hill. In near complete darkness.
