Hmm. I guess it should be Paraeccilia sp., because I believe that this is in the old Subgenus Eccilia. Sorry for the out of focus picture on the moss it was growing on. My 2004 Nikon digital gave up the ghost and I am trying to learn how to shoot pictures without a tripod, obviously not very successfully. The bigger single cap is 12 mm stem 20 mm x maybe 1 mm. Spores pinkish brown, about 5-sided angular, ‘nucleate’, big apiculus, to 11 microns long including the apiculus.
The color change by the time I got it home and realized that the photo on the moss was blurry is large. They darkened considerably overnight.
