Acrocarps on Sycamore at Melin Mynach

First is a bit of a mystery as it seems so distinctive yet I can't make it key out! Robust 2cm high extensive cushion. Leaf margins widely recurved (like a gutter from below) to just below leaf-tip, nerve strongly keeled esp. towards tip.
Orthotrichum affine (Wood Bristle-moss) ID by Sam Bosanquet
 Zygodon viridissimus var. viridissimus (Green Yoke-moss)
  Ulota crispa/brunchii (Crisped/Brunch's Pincushion)
Inclined to favour crispa, but capsule shape seems intermediate?
