From WMS Mauthe lake foray.

The Wisconsin Mycological Society Foray at Mauthe Lake got rained on this year. The deluge was so intense that even hardier folks left, leaving behind what little was found before the monsoon came. This was left behind, and I thought I couldn’t miss this one. Thanks to the stranger (or not) who found this!
As far as the species go, it was rubbery and tough, not as brittle as Peziza usually is. But one could still break the piece off if one wanted to. Kuo also points out that morphologically indistinguishable Pachyella punctispora has been found nearby in Illinois and Michigan, so it could be in Wisconsin too. Here are links to Kuo’s pages:
