Extract from Wikipedia article: Peziza varia is a species of apothecial fungus belonging to the family Pezizaceae. This is a common European fungus associated with rotting wood. The ascocarps are cup-shaped and up to 6 cm (2.4 in) across. The inner surface is smooth and brown, the outer surface is pale, often almost white. This species is rather similar to some other members of the genus but can usually be distinguished by the distinctly layered flesh seen when a specimen is cut.

Arabic: فنجاني متغير, Russian: Пецица изменчивая, Swedish: Stubbskål.
