Notes: I will upload photos very shortly. My little brother came in the house with these in his fists (he’s 3 and very tactile/curious). Apparently they’re growing in our front yard. I’m not educated at all in mycology but am developing quite an interest after researching oyster mushrooms… They smell kind of earthy/ semen-y, though I think the earthy smell could just, in fact, be earth. They were growing in a poorly kept area of the yard with wood chips, new fertilizer and sparse grass, along with some leaves that had fallen (we’re in the process of re-seeding the grass). Recently it’s been abnormally cold and raining on and off. I don’t know exactly when these cropped up but I think they’ve been here for about a week? Any help identifying would be great, thanks!

…most likely I’d say. Dark gills, fragile stems and caps, growing in wood chips. It’s great that your little brother has an interest in mushrooms, but at 3 years old someone should be supervising him on his forays, just to be safe.
