Eyelash Fungus

These little cup fungi are Scutellinia scutellata, or eyelash fungi. On close inspection, you can see little eyelashes on the edges. I've never paid attention to these tiny fungus before, since most of my mushroom gathering has been focused on the table. This is a fairly distinctive fungus, which I'm sure I'll see and identify again along the way.
