I've noticed these mushrooms growing in my backyard today. They are likely thriving on dead grass that my lawnmower has been leaving behind. Can anyone identify them? I am located in the Houston, Texas area.

  • I usually don't pay attention to mushrooms unless they seem to be damaging something. – J. Musser Jun 27 '14 at 23:57
  • @jmusser I'm not really worried about them, just curiosity. – Antarr Byrd Jun 28 '14 at 0:02

Looks like panaeolus foenisecii. Very common in lawns this time of year.
