Lophozia sudetica?

This keyed out to sudetica, the only problems is this was on wood and sudetica is listed as growing on rock. The more keys I look at the more confused I get.
Leaves are slightly less than 1mm long and wide they are bilobed. If there are underleaves I don't see them, but that does not rule out under leaves.
Very clear trigones. 4-6 oil bodies in 30um angular cells.

The sparse geamme are cone shaped and quite unusual.
I did not see microcellous areas in my sloppy and way too thick stem cross sections.

sloppy stem cross section

Cells on edge lack oil bodies
