It recently appeared in my garden. It's attractive but scary - are they honey fungus, is it dangerous, edible and can I compost it?

    looks like it, there are about 10 different sp of honey fungus not easy to tell them apart by photos,

    Hi Thoma

    If I send a sample to say RHS will they identify it for me do you think or is that a bad idea considering what it might be?

    I definitely would contact the RHS to identify the fungus. There are many more good fungi around than bad ones.
    Apparently honey fungus can be better identified by black stringy rhizomes just under the earth's surface or under the bark of an affected tree or bush.
