Blistered cup

If this is not blistered cup fungus (Peziza vesiculosa) then it is a relative.

Blistered cup grows in clusters on rich soil, manure or woodchip.  People seem to commonly find it in their gardens on composted areas.

We found it on the remains of a fire that some visitor to the wood had doused with earth.  This doesn’t quite meet the description of its favoured habitat but seems to be the most likely identification.
