I thought this might be S.austriaca or S. dudleyi. This has a small stem and is pretty small about 2 cm. Tomorrow ill have a look under the scope to see if the spores are rounded or truncate. This is the third time I have found this little scarlet cup this time of year. Last year I found them twice. They all have the same shape.
