Collection location: Moon Lake Park, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]
Small, black cups up to 12mm in diameter x about3mm high. Outer surface densely matted, inner surface smooth and shiny when wet. Found in moss near Oak trees. I’m calling this P. nigrella because one of my refferrences states that this species “usually” grow on or near conifers. This implies that it may be found elsewhere.

I saw your obs. on P. nigrella and I’m of the opinion that the interior is shiny even in dry weather because the cup may absorb moisture or condensation at night thus keeping it moist. My obs. were found during our foray at Moon Lake.
