its genus (as well as sp., of course) is still an open question…

but unlikely to be an Aleuria, which usually shows bright colors. Once I dip into my AK specimen box, tho, I can check for reticulate spores. Prob. won’t happen until I get back from the East Coast in October, tho!

Still looks like a stalked Pizizaceae

to me. Maybe something like Aleuria rhenana.

the bottom cup in the first photo the uprooted one in the second?

That the second one forms a laterally flattened cup, compressed against it’s neighbors and pointing up – it becomes pretty clear that the photos are truly related.

Are these two pictures truly related?

The first looks more like some kind of Pezizaceae ?
