What type of mushroom is this?

Waterloo, IL

We found this growing at the base of our ficas tree. What is it and how did it get there? The tree has not been out of
doors for a couple of years.

Have you repotted the plant at all? These can sometimes appear from the potting compost.

Olympia, WA

Fungal spores are ubiquitous. They grow when they land on a suitable substrate....first by invisible threadlike hyphae - and eventually with a fruiting body such as what you have shown here. I have no idea what type it is.

Gainesville, FL

Lemon-yellow Lepiota

They regularly come up in pots around my greenhouse, seem to like the potting mix I use. They do not cause any harm to the plants though.
