Stalked Hairy Fairy Cup, Dasyschyphus virgineus
Hyaloscyphaceae or White Cup Family

In habitat

Tiny white cups, in groups of few to many, about 1/8 inch in diameter, on short stalks. Inside (where the spores are released) smooth, white. Outside white hairy.

Grows on and helps decompose woody debris, logs, sticks, cones, nuts, etc. Known from Wildwood, but how common is anyone's guess.

Easily identified by the white hairy cups, but easily overlooked.
