I noticed these things in my yard. They look like eggs or seeds in what I would best describe as an over turned limpet shell. They are about 1/4 to 3/8 of an inch in diameter. There are lots of them in my yard... Thanks for your help!

Welcome! Wow, I have never seen anything like that before. I am in Ohio, though. If no one gives you an answer, e-mail your photo to your county extension office - I did that once and they were prompt getting back with me and had the answer. But hopefully someone will answer you soon -- and then we will BOTH know the answer!

That is Birds Nest fungus and grows on organic matter like mulches. No harm in letting it grow.
Easy to Id as it resembles little eggs in a birds nest.
