The Cup Up Close

This is a zoomed in photo of a couple of Tetraphis gemmae cups. The cups are composed of multiple leaves at the apex of the moss that are overlapping. It is not a solid structure like a teacup. (Just an fyi for your imagination image.) I was hoping that the gemmae would be visible, but they are not unfortunately. They are located in the dark area in the base of the cup.
