All over the mulch in my garden are these small brown fungus (I think it's a fungus?):


Some almost look like they "hatched" open, while others have a cap. What are these growths? They first appeared last year, but this year there are many more.


After seeing the link posted in the comments by csk, I looked into it and I believe that this is Cyathus striatus or more commonly, fluted bird's nest fungus.

Pictures seen here seem to be very similar if not identical to what I have in my garden, as well as some of the pictures in the link posted by csk.
