I think this is a Cedar cup but not sure

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.

I found these on Feb 2nd in Northamptonshire. They were growing in parkland under a Cedar tree. I think they are cedar cups but I didn't think these grew in northants.

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi.

Looks good to me.

You can find previous records on the old FRDBI (albeit that it isn't fully up to date), by searching that website by Vice County: -
http://basidiochecklist.science.kew.org ... /FRDBI.asp
(Note however, that the homepage of that website takes quite a few seconds to load!!!).

I just did that (in this case searching by vice county 33 Northamptonshire, which shows 3 records

So yes, Geopora sumneriana has been recorded there: -
