i think this is from the genus "helvella", could not find the specific species, but the here distributed helvella bulbosa looks a bit similiar. here the helvella family ( http://www.google.nl/search?hl=nl&q=... ), maybe old/dry species : " macropus", good luck

This is a very general and unprofessional ID. I hope this helps, yet you may want to consult a Fungi Specialist for this one!
