These popped up in one area after we got a lot of rain..

What is the name of these?

A nice group of them..

Look at this! This is the one I posted weeks ago, it's growing and taking in leaves and flower stems..anything in its way!

Big and bad…

What is this fungus…It may take over the world :-)) Should I destroy it or see what it does?

      Don't destroy it! You could inadvertantly kill the fungus fairies. lol
      Great set Sara!

      Fungus strike again. You made them appear like monsters destroying all that appears in its path. Very good.

      They reminds me a [i]Gymnopilus[/i], but it's difficult to be certain. This type has a particular smell and taste (But don't try it!). Mushrooms (and fungi in general) musn't be destroyed because they enrich the soil. If you find some that can be eaten, you must cut it for the foot. This way you spread the spores and the rhizoma remains into the soil...And I suppose that you will want to see them next season! :))

      They are not ceps nor chanterelles. Of it I'm sure, but what is it ? Mystery.
      Incredible vegetables
