I have lots of Scutellinia trechispora growing on bare earth outside my house at the moment. They are commonly known as Eyelash Fungi and there are quite a few different species of them. They certainly add a splash of colour and brighten up what would otherwise be a dull part of my garden. My identification was confirmed by Mal Greaves (MYFG).
