Those look like the classic young Crucibulum laeve? When very young they have a white fuzz on them, and the yellow-tan cap. Plus I’m not sure people have seen Nidula in the Bay Area really, it is more found on the coast, north of Pt. Reyes (or maybe in Pt. Reyes)…

You can take these home, and keep them moist, and they will develop and open on their own. I’ve done that in the past, and gotten an id on them a week after finding the young ones.
