Pink Fungus

What I think is the asexual form (anamorph) of the fungus Ascocoryne sarcoides growing on a decaying log. 

I took a small sample and it yielded the following small spores (shown at x600): 

These are about 3.5 x 1um which nicely matches the 3-3.5 x 1-2um given for the asexual spores at Wikipedia. The sexual spores are much larger (12-16 x 3-5um).
