cup fungi

Peziza domiciliana


I have no idea what this fungi is but the closes thing i could relate it to was the Orange Peel mushroom. I would like to but it in a book of poisonous plants but i have no clue of it is poisonous or not. I've done about 3 hours of reasearch,l but couldnt find any leads to what it could be... any ideas?


The habitat was under a box that has been there for quite sometime, so im guessing in dark, moist areas.... like most fungi.


kinda has a weird tingle after touching it. all is one mushroom.

Hello Chaise Hanson and Welcome to the Project Noah community!
We hope you like the website as much as we do. There are many aspects to the site and community. The best way to get started is to read the FAQs at where you can find all the tips, advice and "rules" of Project Noah. You, like the rest of the community, will be able to suggest IDs for species that you know (but that have not been identified), and make useful or encouraging comments on other users' spottings (and they on yours).
There are also "missions" you can join and add spottings to. See . A mission you should join is the to chose the best wild photo of 2017,only the spottings added to that mission are eligible.Note that most missions are "local". Be sure not to add a spotting to a mission that was outside of mission boundaries or theme :) Each mission has a map you may consult showing its range. We also maintain a blog archive where we have posted previous articles from specialists from different geographical areas and categories of spottings, as well as wildlife "adventures".
So enjoy yourself, share, communicate, learn. See you around :)

This is one of the cup fungi. It may be in the genus Peziza, but that is just a guess on my part without much evidence.

Here is link to a guide to cup fungi of the Pacific Northwest that may be of help to you:
