Don’t know what I was thinking. The non-woody substrate rules out Sarcoscypha occidentalis.

Sarcoscypha occidentalis has a long and obvious stipe, and always grows on wood.

I’d go with Melastiza, which grows on the ground, and has little to no stipe. What did these look like when you dug them up?
