Several of these mushrooms were growing in close proximity, in moist soil, near a deciduous fruit tree. No real stem. The inside of the cup is black with a single off-white projection in the middle. The outside of the cup is a light beige. The largest mushroom seen in the group was less than 7 cm diameter.

No. Not with the color of the outside of the cup.
Look at the last four pictures of my post 128307. I have a Peziza with three growths in the center. It does seem odd though.
that the pale projections are a result of environmental conditions or a mutation allowing the outside of the cup to partially emerge on the inside. This “piggyback effect” occurs with various fungi including a gilled mushroom growing on top of another gilled mushroom of the same species.
I looked through the 21 pages of Peziza pictures on this site, but the specimens that I posted to the site are the only ones that have a projection in the center. The interior is black, and the projection is off-white. This projection seems to make this mushroom stand apart from the other Peziza. Any thoughts?
is a genus of mostly brown, tan or buff cup fungi. In many cases microscopic information is needed for identification to species. What I might suggest is clicking on advanced search at the top of the page. Type in Peziza and California. You can browse the pictures there to search for a match. Or maybe one of our west coast folks will recognize your find if it is common.
I clicked on your link for Peziza Dill, but the mushroom pictures didn’t look anything like the one in my photos. Do you have any other idea? Thank you!
