Bear's Head tooth mushroom

Pretty excited to find this beautiful mushroom on the walk today.  Not only hadn't I found a specimen before but it's edible.  The books say that sauteed and dipped in garlic butter it's flavor is reminiscent of lobster.  I didn't bring any home w/ me though since (1) I'm not absolutely positively sure it's Hericium americanum  and (2) I don't like lobster.  Might have been tempted if it's taste was described to be like a filet mignon w/ bernaise sauce.
