Which is usually jelly-like and thicker. Using Arora’s keys in Mushrooms Demystified, I key this out to either Peziza brunneoatra (p. 820) which should be growing on soil; or one of the Pachyella sps., which typically grows on wood but which does not match the coloring of this collection. Personally would call this Peziza brunneoatra, since everything in the description matches EXCEPT the substrate.

I think that the above cited species is a possibility. Please check it.

Nothing in photo to give me a clue on how wide or how tall fungi are.
