    Fungi identification- what are these?

    Just found these in my lawn. I can't find them in my mushroom identifier book.
    Does anyone know what type they are?
    Don't worry- I'm not planning on eating them!

    They are 2-3 inches across, about 2 inches deep and quite hard/leathery in texture.

    Google cedar cup? If it is its not edible.
    Roger Phillips book "Mushrooms" is a good reference book.

    I was looking at some of these this morning in the woods. Scarlet Elf Cups which grow on rotting wood. Edible too and one of a few that grow in sub-zero temperatures. Amazingly bright in the drab winter woodland.
