Any ideas what these fungi are?

These are growing along / out of railway sleepers in our raised beds. I would hazard a guess that the railway sleepers are not 'real' with all the tar etc.





Can anyone id them, as I do not to take a chance.

no but they look very similar to some i saw on friday growing out of woodchips i was a bit curious but ages ago decided white gills are too risky to even bother with an id and file them all under wont eat. Laughing

as a slight aside i have noticed quite a few shrooms that seem to be a month or so early at the mo.

I'd second the woodchip source, mixed with horse manure...I've been having a lot like those in our raised beds, also early.

I reckon they are 'fairy rings' or Marasmius oreades unless any other ideas.

I am reliably informed that they are definitely not fairy ring champignons!

very possibly Agrocybe cylinraecea...esp. if they smell of old sherry casks
