After looking at a few sites and referring to some literature in comparison with other Peziza, I agree with P.badia. The reddish outer surface, thin flesh, rather large size(3-8cm. wide) and olive colored interior all match up for this species. I was thrown by the odd “pimpling behavior” inside the cups.

Thanks again kind sir!
