These little brown fruitifications were growing on the same log with Pholiota granulosa seen in the first photo.
I thought they were tiny puffballs at first, but the hole left by a grazing mollusk revealed the insides were full of peridioles, like the eggs in a bird nest fungus!

…just another commonly ignored brown blob on wood, but stunning in its details. these are the best online photos that I could find…love the pocks where the eggs used to lay, within the beautifully textured open-topped ball.
These are rare and not pictured very often in books. Nice, high quality photos!
