    This picture were taken on the Ross/Durrance side of Mount Work, Greater Victoria on May 20, 2017 in the late morning. Rough Location: 48.549189, -123.489621

    I believe the largest specimen in the centre of the image was between 6-10cm at its widest and I did not examine closely to determine if a stem was present.

    Through much guessing with Google and an attempt to fine tune with the written descriptions of eFlora I 'guess' this is in the family Pezizaceae. Could it be: Peziza arvernensis or Peziza succosa

    Any other suggestions or guess?

    I'd guess Pezizaceae as well, and likely Peziza. Someone who knows them better will have to pipe up re: species.
