Found this while walking in woods near our home, not sure what it is and cant seem to find it on google. Was about 8-9 inches tall.
It is almost certainly some species of inkcap. Beware - there are two edible (and tasty) species, but about two dozen poisonous ones!
I think this is one of the poisonous ones: the "magpie fungus" Coprinopsis picacea.
