Subject: Strange mushroom like growths in my lawn… bug nests?

Can anyone help me identify this?? We have a couple of these in our front lawn. They’re about the size and shape of an average mushroom and they are about as fragile as mushrooms, but on the inside they are made of porous brown water resistant dirt. (I shot one with the hose and it burst into dust, but didn’t become mud!) I’m not sure if it’s a plant. I thought it might be a bug nest of some kind, but I’ve never seen any bugs come in or out of them. What is it??? What should I do with it??

This is a Mushroom. It may have been filled with spores. If you have never seen these Mushrooms before and you had some recent landscaping, you might have introduced the spores in dirt or mulch.
