Unfortunately, we do not have the in-house expertise to do mushroom identification beyond the most common wood-decay mushrooms. There are many "look-alikes," and mushroom identification is complex (involving spore prints, etc.). https://extension.psu.edu/identifying-mushrooms

There is no practical or permanent way to eliminate mushrooms. If they are a bother, simply pick and remove them as they appear. You can knock them over with a shovel and put them in the trash. https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/mushrooms-lawns
