Found growing in (redwood) bark mulch, in fairy rings around small conifers. These are small mushrooms with cap sizes up to 4 cm in diameter.

The characters I observed are consistent with some Tubaria. I neglected to mention that the spore print was buff-colored, similar to some of the caps.
You are right about the wood chips in the posted images. Thanks. There were large areas of bark beds in which specimens identical to these were also growing, and in grassy areas too, but they were not as photogenic as the ones I imaged.
Just so you know, those wood chips do not look like Redwood nor bark. They are probably some other random wood chipped tree. Trees commonly chipped in Northern CA are TanBark, Live Oak, Eucalyptus, Cypress, and Pine, though there are a lot of other possibilities.
