These odd looking fungi have just appeared in my lawn and I'd love to know exactly what they are.
Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
Not sure which type,harmless have you any idea of size soil type and if near wood's what kind,as would help with identification.
It would be a good idea to pick one and look at its underside (if it has one!). If it has gills, pores, or neither, this will help further identification. Don't worry about picking fungi, the vast majority of the organism is under ground, the "mushroom" is just the fruiting body, so picking one or two will not damage the organism.

I think if you pick it you will find a small stalk and that would make it Scleroderma areolatum. The patches on the top are too small for S citrinum.
