Mystery moorland fungus (2/3)

Mystery moorland fungus (2/3)
An interesting tiny fungal reproductive structure found during a recent bryophyte recording excursion in the hills near Moffat in the Scottish Borders. The "cap" is covered with little "pimples", each with what looks like an opening at the apex - a bit like ostioles on perithecia, suggesting this may be an ascomycete.

Nice fungi. Is this a Bryum pseudotriquetrum next to it?
