I found this tan-coloured cup-shaped mushroom growing in my back garden on the concrete behind the bin. I'm in the northwestern UK and it's been very wet here recently.

What is this mushroom? Is it dangerous?

  • Some sort of Fungus - common, I don't recall the name. Should be fine if you are not planning to eat it. Might or might not be fine if you are. Or might be a slime mold, which are evidently no longer considered to be fun guys.

  • With identification questions, it's useful to describe where in the world you found the plant, and the conditions where you found it (sun, shade, rocky hillside, forested riverbank, and so on). If you have more information about the plant, please update your question to add it. Thanks.

    @Ecnerwal, not slime mold. Something from the pezizales family. Harmles unless eaten. (Some are even edible.)

  • Hi sorry I'm brand new to this. I'm from north west uk. It's been very wet here recently and this is growing behind my bin on the concrete. I couldn't find anything about it in the Internet so just curious if it's mould or plant or ?
