Used references: Kuo’s Scleroderma key at MushroomExpert. This is tricky. Kuo’s key indicates that cracks of the peridium may stain pink or reddish when bruised. I don’t see staining in the cracks here, which would PROBABLY indicate S. laeve. But I have never seen S. laeve with this red a peridium, either.
