Honey fungus mushrooms?

Hi all

Having had honey fungus take out a few hedging plants I’m a bit paranoid when mushrooms appear.

These are in the lawn, looking suspiciously honey-like but out in the open lawn. 

Are these in the pics honey fungus?

    I don't think this is HF but need to see an underneath shot. On lawns they are usually in clusters over a tree root rather than spread out
  • Hi
    Something has been in overnight eating the mushrooms and there’s been a frost, this is what’s left

    I still don't think it's HF.

    And now the weather is turning colder they'll be disappearing ... the main part of the fungus will remain underground of course ... but it's been there for ages and is all over the place ... the mushrooms are only the fruiting body ... like the flowers on a rosebush.

    There was this post the other day with photos and advice it might help.

  • Thanks all.
    I think - and hope - they’re too pale for HF
