Not an Otidea

All the macroscopic characters (color, external surface, shape) point to a Peziza species.

Looks like Otidea to me.

Peziza varia or allied species

This is clearly a member of the Peziza core group, i.e. species around P. varia, P. vesiculosa, P. arvernensis… But it’s also a hard group and a deep study of microscopic characters is required to propose a name.
