are using Darv.. could you give a link. According to what I read…

N. Peridia are 4–6 mm tall by 4–5 mm wide at the mouth. The exterior surface is a grey color, the interior smooth and whitish. Peridioles are reddish-brown to black, have minute wrinkles, and dimensions of 0.5–1 mm. (wikipedia)

Did you consider & reject Nidula emodensis? It’s known from the Indian Himalayas. I don’t know this species, but the description and location seems like a good fit.
