Otidea alutacea is usually easy to tell apart from others by the shape of the spores – but this is too dark anyway.

Nope, never looked at it.

Nope, never looked at the spores. Not really an Otidea type of guy, and didn’t really know there was much to look for, so I can’t say much here.

Too dark for alutacea

Looks more like bufonia to me. Have you looked at the spores?
