Okay, with these new photographs, I change my opinion. This is a Peziza species, around Peziza varia or allied species.

Thank you for suggesting a name Nicolas. I’ve added a few more photos. All these mushrooms were found in a single patch.

I did not collect any, so I cannot provide microscopic data, but I will note that these cup mushrooms did not release massive clouds of spores when I blew hard on them, which was surprising to me. I did note a visible puff of spores when I bumped one with a stick though.

… and it would be easy to check with microscopic characters.
