This "fungus" pops up every year in the same location around Thanksgiving. I have looked all over and I can not figure out what it is. Any suggestions are appreciated.

I would dig a hole where it sits and remove whatever is feeding it and fill it up with sand and compost... Take the sample to the local university if you want a name...

To me it looks like the early stages of a puffball... only it seems too flat...

Sometimes I hit the mushroom thingys with my mowers and they put out some major dark powder. Probably spores are the powder.
