the other obs. of this sp and read about the Peziza (violacea in that case). It’s the first time I find a Peziza, and this Anthracobia was side by side with it. Can you take a look of my Peziza, please?

Anyway I am going back there and bring a sample, what’s the best way to do it (and dry)?

I would just call that Anthracobia sp.

without further investigation. There have been described about 15 species in the Norther hemisphere.
Anthracobia maurilabra and melaloma are very close both of which are not that uncommon. Unfortunately I do not have digital photos, last I found was before 2006 when I started taking digital photos.
