What are these mushrooms

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Welcome to Uk Fungi :)

Please take a moment to read HELP US TO HELP YOU TO IDENTIFY YOUR FINDS

We appreciate you might not be able to provide all these details, but the more the better chance we have of reaching an ID.Particularly, we need to see clear photos of the top of the cap, plus of the gills and stem.

Also please take a moment to read Edibility Requests

Best wishes

I think you would get a more sympathetic response if you hadn't removed so many mushrooms. On here, we enjoy looking at and identifying fungi, like bird lovers like their birds and plant lovers like orchids. If someone posted photos of a dozen dead birds they'd shot or 30 orchids they'd pulled up, and asked in a birdwatching or plant ID group, it would clearly upset those people. I admit I'm being a bit over-dramatic, to make the point :) but there are rare fungi, and they have their part in the ecosystem. One or two fruitbodies would be fine and if you could provide the details needed from the FAQ, you would get a better response.
In terms of toxicity, there are lots of poisonous plants and people plant them in their gardens without even bothering to check toxicity. Fungi have been selected for special attention in this respect. Most people have no interst in fungi unless its for eating. Again, when you see a lesser spotted woodpecker, no-one asks "is it good to eat" or "is it poisonous."
Dogs have good noses, and apart from over-excited puppies, are simply are not interested. Cats are carnivores, they don't eat fungi.
