This showed up in my mulch the last few weeks. Itís in two spots in areas around a foot across. I included a dime in the picture to illustrate the size of the polyps. Can someone tell me what this stuff is and how to get rid of it?

Looks like that mulch is wet in the pic..............
It's just fungus,it does quite well in mulch,we've got it all over the place with all the rain we've had.
Fungicides or just wait till things dry out.
It isn't anything unusual.

I beelive is a dime. Used in America as currency. Worth 1/10 of a dollar. :)

Its called artilery fungus. It will shot black spores up to 18 feet. These black spores will get on tree truncks, houses, cars, or whatever is in its path. Caused by moisture so turn the mulch over and dry it out and you should be ok.
