Mystery: Mushroom

Another in our "mystery series."

I noticed these fungi in line formations near our shed, on the shady side, yesterday. Small spiny knobs that open to cream-topped caps, which then seem to melt back into themselves (perhaps when spores are released?) They're also on the ground over mysterious tunnels- we're not sure what creature makes these tunnels, but there are golf-ball sized holes all over the yard (lawn, beds, garden, etc.) No plants are being harmed- they didn't even touch the turnips in the garden box, although that may be just a matter of preference!

Any idea what these guys are?
