Peziza Repanda

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Hi !!
Found today in New Forest Hampshire under Pine Trees.
The colour has made me difficult to identify with my references.
Sorry no other views as didn't want to remove it from ground

Hello Neil
Not a Peziza: Otidea sp. impossible to take it further without pure guesswork*.
Regards
Chris

*though this - well worth getting if you regularly visit the New Forest - https://www.abebooks.co.uk/Fungi-New-Fo ... 3910044/bd might give an idea of what has been found there in the past.

PS Those do not look like pine cones . . . .

Until I got into fungi, I thought all conifers were pines. Its the layman's knowledge of trees really. Since then, I've learnt that pines, spruce, firs, larch are all different and its important for fungi identification.
