Initially mistook these for small Caloscypha fulgens but spores were way too large. These spores were in the range of 15.3-18.9 X 11.0-11.9 microns.

Not Geopyxis vulcanalis in its original sense

After the recent publication by Wang et al. (2016) “Multilocus phylogenetic and coalescent-based methods reveal dilemma in generic limits, cryptic species, and a prevalent intercontinental disjunct distribution in Geopyxis (Pyronemataceae s. l., Pezizomycetes)” published in the last issue of Mycologia, this collection fits with the new species Geopyxis deceptiva.
G. vulcanalis in the original sense of Peck is G. carbonaria, a widespread discomycete on burnt places.
