Help with mushroom ID

11 years ago

We found a dozen or so of these large cup-shaped mushrooms in Southern New Hampshire. These were about 6 days with no rain and they were still in pretty good shape. I can't find anything that resembles these.

The most interesting feature of them is the deep cupping of the cap, which is at this point not "sticky" or glabrous, but they may have been at one time because several of them had leaves cemented to them. The shape was common to all of them, even ones that were hidden and growing under thick pine needles.

The spore print is apparently white. There is no milk or bruising when the cap is broken. The stems are somewhat hollow. There is no veil or volva.

I have posted several photos at and would really love to hear from an expert on what these may be.
