The first cup fungus I've been fortunate to observe in my mushroom adventures. These were all spotted (hard to miss a bright orange object in a predominantly dark-brown and -green place) in a jungle-like area in Palenque, Tabasco, Mexico, Earth, and each one fascinated me to no end.
Occuring oftenly in groups, sometimes solitary atop the thin layer of humus in the area.
Not sure about the identification, even though the description matches this find spot-on; using a field guide to mushrooms of the United States on a Mexican fungus is not a wise choice, but it appears to have been common enough to be keyed out in the book anyways.
