Recognized by sight: the “coronas” are probably worn down. The gleba on C. ruber is on the inside, it’s around the rings here and there is no sign of it on the inner part.
Also these are really round…

Summary: .

Yeah, I almost thought C. crispus but there are no “coronas”(rings) around each of the holes. So it’s just a very round C. ruber, unlike those found in Northern California.

Summary: Just confirmed the id

Looks consistent with my experience of C. ruber, but just to be sure I went through the key in “Clathraceae” by D.M. Dring and confirmed it.
