A strange Mushroom that appeared in the bathroom of my house after a botched up plumbing job left us with leaks left, right and center.

We're a little worried about being harmful, so want to take the right care when removing it.

Any suggestions on what it might be and whether or not we should be cautious?
Updated: The shape and colour has changed slightly, with the cap being all brown and the stalk looking thinner.


Appearance Change
It now looks thinner and the cap is brown.

I don't think so. Its cap looks solid and smooth.

Maybe mentioning I live in the south of England would be of benefit to naming this little nightmare?

Could be a Coprinus micaceus

It doesn't.

Also, the appearance has changed. The entire cap is now brown and the stalk seems to have shrunk in thickness.

I'll try updating the photo if I can.

It looks like it might be a Honey Mushroom. It doesn't look like any toxic variety that I know of. Does it have a ring around the stalk?
