Identification Help

I was wondering if someone could help me identify these fungi that keep popping up in my new plants in my greenhouse. I have had about 12 of these pop up in a week and they aren't like any I normally get in my garden.
I am in the UK.
Many thanks, Lindsay

hard to say, as the pictures are not that sharp and a bit far away. But one can see dark brownish-blackish gills and a cap that changes the colour when drying. So this is very likely a species of Psathyrella ("Brittlestem"). If the gills aren't that dark as it look, it could also be an Agrocybe species.

In either case, the fungus is neither poisonous nor edible and in no way harmful to the plants in your greenhouse.

best regards,
