Recognized by sight: Fungi of Switz has this listed as being on alder, but I think my substrate is white cedar, if anyone can confirm that?….
Forcing it there because the pic is so close and time of year.

not Mollisia amenticola

Mollisia amenticola is a greyish to blueish-grey Mollisia confined exclusively to alder cones. It will never have this colouration, even when dehydrating. I’m not sure from the foto whether this is a Mollisia at all. If so, it would be quite unusual.
The picture of Mollisia amenticola in Fungi of Switzerland represents Calycellina (Pezizella) alniella (same as no. 194). But the microscopical description originates of Mollisia amenticola. I examined the herbarium specimen of th collection in Fungi of Switzerland and found that both species, Calycellina alniella and Mollisia amenticola, were present in this collection. So the authors obviousely examined the Mollisia, but described and depictured the Calycellina.
