I used Gaston Guzman’s book “Los Hongos de El Eden, Quintana Roo”
He shows a very different fungus from the ones you can find on Google, but there is a definite generic resemblance.

I doubt that book is very available – the typical conundrum in the world of taxonomy.

what references did you use to come to this conclusion? My google search is showing mostly uniform images of fungi which appear to be stalked cups with nails hammered into the upper surface.

Excuse my poor scientific vocabulary.
