This isn't what is normally referred to as 'Cup Fungi' as it has gills. This is a standard Agaric (gilled mushroom) with an inverted cap, something which happens to a lot of old mushrooms.

I'm not 100% on my ID but it is likely given your location, the time of year, and the mushroom's cap and spore colour.
