We need to see the underside of the cap. My first guess you be Polyporus squamosus, rather than one of the many tooth fungi. If so, the underside should be covered with pores rather than teeth.

If it is one of the tooth fungi, edibility will primarily depend on how bitter tasting it is.

Happy mushrooming!

Well, from what I see you have a Dryads Saddle (Polyporus squamosus) as ToxicMan suggested.

These are extremely common this time of year, and could be fruiting from buried wood in your lawn. If you look at the underside of the cap you will see lots of tiny holes (pores). Polyporus squamosus is edible but not very tasty.

Now, if your mushroom really does have teeth on the underside (a picture would be helpful here), then you may have Sarcodon imbricatus.

I have been told by people I trust that it is best to avoid the scaly Hedgehogs.
