I recently put my philodendron hope plant outside to enjoy some rain the other day (plant normally stays indoors) and now I have this little guy growing in the pot with it. Is there any reason for concern? Does anyone know what kind of mushroom this is by chance?

Thank you!

They are called Yellow Houseplant Mushrooms. They are growing on the organic matter in your potting soil and would have shown up, even without the outside adventure.

The only danger is if you have pets or small children as the mushrooms smell wonderful. You can pull the mushroom off and sprinkle the area with cinnamon to kill the roots.
