Black Fog is an alternate evolution to Haunter which appears once in the manga, and once in the anime (where it simply referred to itself as Ghost). It is also referred to as Giant Haunter.
Black Fog appears as a Giant Haunter, in the manga it appears with a much spikier appearance than regular Haunter and it's claws and teeth appear sharper. In the anime it has red glowing eyes.
As stated in the Electric Tale of Pikachu, Black Fog are able to consume an enemies soul, they are much stronger than Gastly, Haunter, or Gengar and seem to have the power to control other Ghost-types.
A Giant Haunter, which only referred to itself as Ghost (Haunter's Japanese name), appeared in Fear Factor Phony, Haunter transformed into this form by merging with several other Ghost-types, including two Gastly, two Duskull, and a Shuppet.
In The Old Chateau, a Giant Haunter appeared in the Old Chateau after the butler's ghost disappeared, appearing from a massive cloud of darkness and lightning, it chased Cheryl and her Chansey, and apparently consumed them. However they soon woke up elsewhere, wondering what happened.
