Perhaps too hasty

Pic 1 looks to me like C. coniocraea, but pics 2 & 3 have patchily decorticate podetia, some with cups that appear to widen, bringing in the possibility of the similar-looking C. ochrochlora.

Pictures 2 and 3 are intended

Pictures 2 and 3 are intended to be close up of 1 but were just a little lower, as far as I can remember. Thanks.
