Asked on the 'net and found out they're called "Mammatus, also known as mammatocumulus"

Real interesting storm in that it just sat over the Connecticut River Valley in Massachusetts and Connecticut, plus parts of Western Connecticut and the lower Housatonic Valley...area of Deerfield got smacked by 6" of rain in a few hours; I've seen that before and it's just not pretty:
