Mystery moorland fungus (3/3)

Mystery moorland fungus (3/3)
A view showing that the cap-like structure does not bear gills or pores in its underside, which tends to eliminate the possibility that this is a basidiomycete. The outer surface of the "ball" appears to be covered in pores, and my current hypothesis is that this is some species of ascomycete with an ascocarp reminiscent of some species in the Leotiaceae.
