Cyathus helenae, which Arora calls …“found mostly [but not totally?] in arid or alpine habitat, ith a grayer, thicker-walled nest that has tufted hairs on its exterior.” In comparison with other C. striatus, C. helenae seems to be darker brown, practically charcoal black. But this thick-walled nests are an important feature. Like C. striatus, C. helenae also has “radially striate” interiors.
