What sort of fungi are these?

Got these growing outside and inside my greenhouse. Hope they are not a variety of honey fungus?

    Trooping crumble cap, I think.
    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
  • Just googled Trooping crumple cap (love the name) and it says the season is Aug to Nov?. Pics do look similar but the fungi don't appear to be colonising rotting wood.

    Thought I’d give it a try.

  • Thanks for all the suggestions. It looks like it's just a nuisance rather than anything I'm going to have to worry about.

    fungi are part of the wonderful world of nature. 
    Gardeners need to work with it not against it.

    Everything has a place in nature, just don't want them all in my garden.

    Look like common inkcap to me I have a huge cluster that come up every year on the roots of an old elm. They'll dissolve into slime soon enough. And no not a type you need to worry about.
  • Your perspective often changes when you lay down and look at the fungi - a different sort of forest ( tho your neighbours may worry about you rolling about in the garden at this time of year  :)
    Can't offer a name but they usually disappear quickly enough.
    They are probably a sign that I should be a but more tidy around the greenhouse. They do appear as outcrops around the garden, probably helped by all that mulch chippings I put down.

    Caught our local friendly tree climbing cat taking a bite out of one today so they can't taste that bad.
