Dryads saddle or sometimes referred to as pheasant back. Decent edible if found while young, usually smaller than a saucer. Once they get bigger than that or older they are not as desirable. I slice mine very thin, about 1/8 inch or slightly thicker and sauté in butter and freshly sliced garlic. Sauté until slightly crispy of the edges.

Just found this while Morell hunting? What kind is it? View attachment 15788
That's a pheasant back, or Dryads saddle. Not poisonous, can taste pretty good. You can trim the freshest edge and it will fry up and be pretty tasty. The smaller they are, the more you can take, but on the biggest one in your pick you'll only want to take about 1/2" of the outer edge, but after that it's tougher than shoe leather. After you've done it once you'll be able to tell how much to take.
