(Harrington 1998) indicate that S. coccinea in N-America might deserve distinction at varietal or even species level.

According to Baral, both austriaca and coccinea are possible in oak habitats, and both appear in eastern NA. Most likely it is one of these.

I really don’t know my trees as well as I wish I did. I added photos of the surrounding trees. Hopefully it will prove helpful.

Or both in the vicinity?

of each species is unknown to me. I am sure there are numerous herbarium collections of “Sarcoscypha coccinea” waiting to be scoped which might answer your question. At any rate, it’s nice to see a spring fungus fruiting North of my location. My local “patch” was not fruiting earlier this week. Time to get back out there.

Thanks Walt. So

is S. dudleyi as likely as S. austriaca?
