The Horn of Plenty can be identified by its funnel-shaped, grey-black fruiting body and thin flesh. It does not have gills, and there is no distinct boundary between the cap and the stem. The outer surface of the mushroom is bluish grey with a white scaly layer and black at the base. The flesh is grey-black.
