Could it be a liverwort? They do that disappearing trick when it's dry.

Are the photos at actual size or did you zoom in on the plant?

It looks like a liverwort to me, too. It's a very primitive, spore-bearing plant with hundreds of species in dozens of genera. Likeliest person to give a specific identification is an expert in non-vascular plants. My uninformed opinion is a Conocephalum species, but that is just from perusing pictures.
