Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Help identifying this mushroom whulst gardening

Discovered these mushrooms under a shrub whilst clearing out weeds.

Naturally my concern is that they might be young death caps or something else sinister.

They look young so possibly harder to identfy?

possibly St.-Georges-Mushroom.
Certainly not a Death Cap or something else very poisonous.

best regards,
