Recognized by sight: This looks like H. calyculata with a fungus attacking it, causing the white mycelium grouth on the tops of these specimens. If you look at the center of the first image there is one specimen who is not being attacked by the fungus and is clearly yellow in color not white as in Didymium.

Thanks, Danny. I got a new camera: Sony NEX-5n with a macro lens (SEL30M35) that can do 1:1 magnification. I’m still learning how to use this camera…
