When: 2015-08-20

I have no idea what this is but have it coming up all over one of my large vegetable beds. Given the shear number of the mushrooms I am wondering if its something used in one of the mushroom composts i put down Any help in identifying is greatly appreciated.

Leucocoprinus birnbaumii is really bright yellow – i see a little yellow in the young specimens, but the older ones lack all that colour. For me it is definitely a Leucocoprinus, but not birnbaumii.

Thanks for the suggestion

Thank you theoneje for the suggestion. Searching Leucocoprinus birnbaumii online for a bit it looks exactly like what I see in my garden and that it is a common garden mushroom in warmer regions. I wonder if some of the companies producing mushroom compost are using the mycelium in the break down process?
