Can you identify what is in the picture that I have attached, it grows on my front lawn and it seems to only grow where the sewer pipe is below. Are they harmful to my lawn. Thank you

This looks like a stinkhorn fungus. Like all fungi/mushrooms, it pops up when conditions are just right.
It will not harm your lawn.
If you don't like it, just knock it over.
