Thanks. I will try to get a better shot when the sun is out to sort out the colour aspect.
and have a look a section through the flesh with a hand magnifier to see if there is any layer visible.
Hello D.M.H.I have taken some more samples. The majority are chestnut coloured inside and lighter on the exterior. The exterior is not downy but nontheless has that look about it. There are two layers and they separate quite easily. Some young specimens are virually spherical.
Since I can't get more pics on this entry I will import some new ones under a new Peziza entry.
Go with 'layered cup' Peziza varia not for certain but very likely to be based on this extra information :-)
