Observation 204857: Peziza Dill. ex Fr.
When: 2015-05-19
Collection location: Sitka, Alaska, USA [Click for map]
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Growing in outdoor container. It seemed to be growing from the soil, though last year I had added some beach grass on top for fertilizer (some of which is still visible). No stem that I could find.

I collected some and hope to have a friend take a look at the microscopic characters.
