Could this be the same as your suspected O. tuomikoskii?

I don’t understand why Robert Sasata keeps using pictures on wikipedia if they aren’t properly ID:d…

Btw Debbie, did you get the Otidea keys?

I thought not

but wikipedia thinks so or who ever put my photo there for Otidea leporina. I left my observation at Otidea because of something I read at the time. Now I can’t find that so this isn’t much help. ;)

any way to tell species by the macro?
