Mystery Mushrooms

Mystery mushrooms have cropped up in my garden! They look like brown flowers.

I was hanging around the coconut tree when I saw this little flower-like thing on the ground. I thought it to be that part of the fruit that people turn into ornaments, the thing that holds the coconut while still on the tree. When I picked it up, I was startled to find that it was soft and actually a mushroom. I had to yank one out of the ground for inspection, and was surprised to find that the stem was really skinny and quite short.

What the hell is this thing? Anyone familiar with it?
