Orange Fungi

These have appreared in profusion in my garden this year, any idea what it is and is it harmful, i know it may be as a result of the woodchip mulch but there are lots of it. Never seen this bright orange one before.imageimageimage

    HELLO,

    I SEE YOU HAVE BEEN ASKING THIS QUESTION SINCE LAST SEPTEMBER, WITHOUT SUCCESS.

    I TAKE IT THE MUSHROOMS ARE NO LONGER AROUND.

    A LOT MORE INFORMATION NEEDED.

    FIRSTLY, CAN YOU REMEMBER WHETHER THE CHIPPINGS WERE FROM CONIFERS OR DECIDUOUS TREES?

    THE SIZE OF THE CAPS?

    THE COLOUR OF THE GILLS (IF THEY WERE GILLS AND NOT TUBES)

    THE LENGTH OF THE STALK?

    DID THE STALK HAVE A RING ON IT?

    WHAT DID THE MUSHROOMS SMELL OF, IF ANYTHING?

    THEY LOOK SHINY AND WET. WAS THAT THE RAIN OR WAS IT THEIR NORMAL TEXTURE?

    WHEN WE HAVE THAT, WE CAN BEGIN TO CROSS THINGS OFF THE LIST

    I WOULD HAVE A STAB AT THIS RARE MUSHROOM, BUT IT IS JUST A GUESS.
