Day 1 – 12 August 2023

I found a Peziza (cup fungus) on the ground with moss and leaf litter.

The outer surface was shrivelled and a buff colour; the inside was smooth and honey-yellow.

I saw some more on the Day 4 (26 August 2023).

They were cream, some darker or more orange, but all were also shrivelled to some extent.

On the Day 5 (03 September 2023), I found a group of larger, olivaceous buff Peziza.

These were less shrivelled than when I had seen them before, with lighter edges.

By Day 6 (09 September 2023), they had all shrivelled again.
