Is this Honey Fungus?

Hi there,
i was just wondering if anybody could help me identify this fungus? It’s in my parents garden and they’re unsure whether it’s honey fungus or not, I’ve tried working it out myself but I’m not 100% sure so thought I’d ask you guys on here.
Thanks in advance!

    It is quite possibly an armillaria, but I don’t think its the evil one (a.mellea) as the caps look smooth, not scaly. However, remove it and see whether black shoe lace type root things, and destroy it anyway. 
  • Thank you, I did recommend they removed it just incase 😊

    If you see any type of mushroom growing in the garden, removing the bit you can see won’t make much difference.

    The mushroom you see is only the equivalent of a flower on a plant. So all you are doing is much the same as picking off a flower, or maybe a flower and a bit of stalk.

    The business end of a fungus is all hidden away and stretches a long way in all directions. Like this
