Disciotis venosa – bleach cup

Synonyms: Aleuria venosa, Discina reticulata, Discina venosa, Disciotis reticulata, Peziza reticulata, Peziza venosa.

Common names: bleach cup, Veined Cup.

Extract from Wikipedia article: Disciotis venosa, commonly known as the bleach cup, veiny cup fungus, or the cup morel is a species of fungus in the family Morchellaceae. Fruiting in April and May, they are often difficult to locate because of their nondescript brown color. Found in North America and Europe, they appear to favor banks and slopes and sheltered sites. Although D. venosa is considered edible, it may resemble several other species of brown cup fungi of unknown edibility.
