at Van Damme. I think Oluna Ceska first spotted them in the roadside thickets of ferns and rotting vegetation. Lots of interesting small fungi all along the campground path…we barely made it off the asphalt before our two hours were up! Dave Grubb from San Diego as well as Kim Travers from Seattle, Mei Kwan from LA and Oluna and Adolph Ceska from B.C were all on this walk, along with Debbie and David from Oakland…good times.

There is a description for Calyptella capula

aka Cyphella capula (which is apparently the type species for this genus) in “The Agaricales in Modern Taxonomy” by Rolf Singer 1962. It could be your collection. The spores are 8-8.5 X 5-6 microns, ellipsoid and inamyloid.
