Cup structure first appears as a hole in the ground. As it develops it can become more complex, open out wider, and flatten. Colors are cream, tab, brown, and slightly gray. Structures crumble easily into small pieces. Excavating reveals a larger portion underground, sometimes. Remarkably few insects -a sole nematode was lethargic and did not try to escape. These are also unmolested by resident wildlife observed to eat other fungi. Each body appears to be loosely associated with feeder roots from nearby pine. Soil is a rich, organic mix that was just added the previous year, sourced from the municipality. Spores appeared on the inner surfaces on May 6th. See new images. Despite minimal wind and 3 ft distance, the spores were also over the camera. These appeared to be white.

They were not on a campfire, no. The soil is just very black from compost. These are in an area with cedar and other conifers.
On a campfire ?
