Spotted this cup in Galloway, Scotland over Easter – not collected as only 1 and microscope at home.
The only ID that matches is pseudoplectania nigrella –
-black cup; 2.5cm; black smooth inner; black matt woolly hairy outer; crusty woolly margin; black flesh; no stem
-on mossy needle littered mound in mature conifer plantation.
It’s rare – only found in (more northern) Scotland and Wales.
Is there anything similar that I’ve missed? – thoughts appreciated….
