Dark chestnut pecica (Peziza badia)

Description

The fruiting body is 1-5 (12) cm in diameter, at first almost spherical, later cupped or saucer-shaped, wavy-rounded, sometimes flattened oval, sessile. The inner surface is dull brown-olive, the outside is brown-chestnut, sometimes with an orange tint, with a whitish fine-grained, especially along the edge. The pulp is thin, brittle, brownish, odorless. Spore powder is white.

Spread

Brown pecica (Peziza badia) grows from mid-May to September, sometimes appearing with morels. Inhabits soil in coniferous (with pine) and mixed forests, on dead deciduous wood (aspen, birch), on stumps, along roads, always in wet places, in groups, often, annually. One of the most common species of the genus.

Similarity

It can be confused with other brown pets; there are many of them, and they are all just as tasteless.

Assessment

Poor quality edible mushroom, used fresh (boiled for about 10 minutes) and dried.
