I thought this was Porodisculus pendulus until I saw the gills. The fruiting bodies are about 6 mm in diameter and 5mm tall. I have no idea what it is, but have saved the specimen for future reference.

Thanks to Christian Schwarz for this identification. I have looked at the photo of that species on Geroge Barron’s site (http://www.uoguelph.ca/~gbarron/MISCELLANEOUS/aug00.htm ) and it looks very much like mine. But this is certainly not the same fungus as observation 5253, also listed herein as Tectella patellaris. For one thing, the sizes are totally different (6 mm diameter for my specimen, 5 inches for observation 5253).
