Mushroom Identification

Asked May 28, 2020, 2:10 PM EDT

Many of these mushrooms popped up overnight in my backyard in Fort Washington, MD 20744. I was unable to find any conclusive source.

Prince George's County Maryland

It is common for mushrooms to pop up just when conditions are right for them, mainly when it is wet and humid.
We do not have a mycologist on staff and so can not give specific identity or questions related to edibility.
If you don't like them you can just knock them over or put them in the trash.
