    It's old specimen of jack-o'-lantern mushroom (Omphalatus olearius).

    More usually found on the roots of trees than just in the garden and rather rare in Britain, so not so sure of the id from Ante. Not that I know what it really is.

    A photo of the underside showing the gills and stem would help with ID.

    On the botanical side we should say fungus/i and not mushroom as this seems to say that they are ok to eat which many aren't but others are.

    I would want to see the underside and possibly a younger specimen than those. Are there any trees nearby that could have roots running under the grass?
  • Can we see photo's of the underside and stems please?  They could be Honey Fungus, but need to see more to be able to confirm or deny.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
