there are many striate Cyathus spp. present in temperate and particularly tropical habitats. Their identification is complicated, dependent on both macro- and micromorphological details. See the accompanying species list for more information.

I just checked the pictures for both Cyathus striatus and Eucyathus they are so similar they look the same to me. Of course I figured that the one I found on the INBIO was the right one but now I am doubting myself.
