Vibrissea truncorum looks very much like them. They were on a moss wall waterfall. I was looking for salamanders and saw them. It was semi-dark where I was so I did not get a good look at them, but yes, they were very small and very cute.

Trying to an ID a Californian mushroom all the way from Oz is risky especially if you know very little about them however, check this one out - Vibrissea truncorum
Going by the size of the moss beside them, i assume they were small. Also, there appears to be a gelatinous sheath covering the stipe ( stalk) , am I right ?. It would be good to have more information for an ID - I hope you find out what it is - they are cute !
It also looks a little like Leotia sp...
