Observation 12708: Phleogena faginea (Fr.) Link

Notes: These little fungi are not much to look at. They are tiny and brown and leathery tough. I would guess Myxomycota, but they look a lot like true mushrooms.

These were new to me at the time, and I didn’t think to smell them. Another collection from the same year, but but from a different location smelled very much like cumin.
