Helvella corium

The photos shows a fruitbody of Helvella corium – the granular outer surface and the ecology are typical. I know this ascomycete from a former military training area in the north of Munich (Bavaria, Germany) – today the area is a nature reserve and contains very interesting grassland fungi:

Hint: Use Google Translator to translate the german language to your favorite.

Helvella corium grows there on the calciphil, shingly and non to sparsely vegetated ground near Salix bushes where tanks did their training units.

Nice find.

but not Plectania nannfeldtii, which resembles a small black goblet, and only grows on rotten wood at the edge of flowing snowmelt in the Western mountains.
