They sure didn't last long. It seemed as though they were breaking thru, full grown, then wilted all within a couple of days. I am thrilled I got a couple of good picture while they were at their peak. If more pop up in the future, hopefully its OK if I enjoy looking at them while they last. After they finished wilting I pulled the base out of the soil, and threw it in the trash. Thanks again for your help.

Great pictures! that's all we need to see the important characteristics. Looks like it has unconnected, free gills like the Leucocoprinus birnbaumii, but the spore print should be white, not yellow. I'm not sure, but it appears poisonous.

Does it have an "Annulus" (little skirt around the waist)?
If you cut the cap of the mushroom off, then place it on a piece of paper, it will give you a "spore print" in about 30 minutes.
If you take a picture of the spore print and close-ups of the underside of the cap and base, then we can give you a positive ID.

If you look at Google images, it will show many different shapes to this fungi.

Hey, I think it is probably Leucocoprinus birnbaumii. Read about it at
