No specimen available

Had I known what this was in the field, and known that Tom wanted specimens, I would have gathred them. If the group feels my ID is correct – and if the 6 inches of rain so far today doesn’t wash everything away – I’ll try to collect & send thee to Tom.

The individual fungi were about 10 cm overall, half of that being the bell/funnel shaped top, which was about 4.5 cm across. The flesh was rubbery, the top edges split and rolled. No odor was detected. The fungi was growing from the leaf duff at the end of a fallen beech branch that looked to have been on the ground for a couple of years.
