I didn’t notice HOW small they were, not likely Tarzetta at all. I don’t even know where to start looking for these.

I see what you mean

But the paraphyses in mine have irregular tips, which I don’t see in the diagrams or description for T. cupularis.

Could be Tarzetta cupularis, that’s a smaller one. Most of the spores seen in the picture, are probably immature. The blurry ones at the upper left, seem closer to the right size.
