Purple and red tones are more evident in the bottom photo. They appear to start out a deep purple-brown and brecome more yellowish brown as they get older.

I think OB# 66641 might be the same thing.

I would have called it P. badia or P. badiaconfusca

Just a reasonable guess as it is common in Ohio and there is a bit of violaceous ruddiness to my eye. I would have liked to see more color to make it a sure thing.

Is this ID because near elm? I never know any macro characteristics for these early spring pezizas…
