I believe you are correct Sarah, I retract my suggestion.
chesterbperry, I don't really know anything about bird's nest fungus or little nest polypores, but here's what I'm thinking. MushroomExpert says the outside of Poronidulus conchifer is white, and these are brown. And they really looked like something old, not just beginning. They were hard and dry with pieces cracked off. And one looks like it has some sort of lining that is dried separating off like in some pics of crucibulum laeve. What do you think?
Very cool capture Sarah,i think is fungi nest sp.https://www.google.pt/url?sa=t&rct=j...
