for looking at my observation. You are correct about Auricularia/on wood. In rethinking this find I feel pretty sure this was on soil. Have been going through observations on MO of Peziza phyllogena: 295953, 273724, 165683 and 138221 particularly noting the surface beneath on those as compared to mine. So, I am going to change my observation to that and see if there are any further comments. Thanks for your help!!
