Mushroom id request

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.

Mushroom id request

Post by Hedgegardener » Mon May 04, 2020 12:48 pm

Ive recently started weeding out a patch in my backyard where a tree was recently felled due to it being unsafe.
There was a lot of sawdust left over & now after the recent rain I've noticed these mushrooms start sprouting up.
Could anybody help me ID these please.

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi,

Suggesting ID's for mushrooms is, at best, extremely difficult when photos are the main source of information, and, (other than for the most obvious of species), is nigh-on impossible when good, well focussed, close-up shots of all relevant parts of the fungus in question, top, underside, stem, etc. etc., (along with other basic information), is not provided.

For future reference, if you have an ongoing interest in the subject, please take a moment to read HELP US TO HELP YOU TO IDENTIFY YOUR FINDS.
We appreciate that you might not always be able to obtain all the necessary information, but the more details you can provide, the better chance you will have of confident identification suggestions.

Common sense is not so common.

Probably Agrocybe praecox as there seems to be a lot of that at the moment! But as Mile says, its a wild shot in the dark without better photos and information.
