I Need help identifying a mushroom

Asked October 29, 2018, 8:42 PM EDT

This has sprung up near some wood chips we put out. Any idea about what kind of mushroom it is. Any information would be appreciated. Many thanks, -Steve Williford
ps- well, I have just seen your answer to a previous mushroom identity question and I have to believe my question deserves the same answer. I would delete my question except I think the pictures are really interesting. but thank you, anyway.

Since so many people try to eat mushrooms, we do not venture into the highly specialize field of mushroom identification. Incorrect identification could have serious, if not deadly, consequences.

I'd to share a few excellent resources on mushrooms that may pique your interest:
