    These popped up in several places and I'm not having luck identifying them on the internet.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated. They are growing in the grass. First pic is a close up of one 'mound' that is in the second pick. Second pick shows a collection and the feet of my 3 y/o DGD might give perspective as to size. Thank you.

    In the grass? Hmmm, idk.

    If it were growing on stumps or wood I would guess a honey mushroom species

    I'll be watching this as I also have these growing in my lawn. Actually, I now have 3 different kinds currently growing.

    Holy Hannah! They appear to be aliens of some type...perhaps from Planet Mushroomamoungus or maybe one of their moons. Please use extreme caution when removing so the spores do not get loose. Those are nasty looking.
