Mushrooms growing on my lawn

Does anyone know what they might be?


I read that mushrooms are quite common on lawns after a particularly wet few weeks.


Trying to ascertain whether they are safe.


Thanks in advance.

    They could potentially be Marasmius oreades, and these would be quite common at this time of year on lawns. It is not possible to be certain from the photograph however, so you should definitely not consider them 'safe'!

    Would be useful to see the underside of the mushroom / the gills, and to see if they change to a paler colour when dried out.
