Used references: Arora, Mushrooms Demystified, p. 716. Stipe appears to fit into the gleba via “ball and socket” fitting. Should have been a tuberculate base of stipe, which might have been lost here. I see no species with what I would describe as a “lime-green” gleba. Still need more photos, especially of the gleba if possible, GA noiz. I might still be wrong here, if the gleba has locules (that I don’t see yet).

Tulostoma fibrillosum, which according to Arora “…lacks a tube (around the apical pore) but has practically smooth spores and a longer, coarsely hairy stalk.” If it is, would need microscopy for confirmation.

And need a dehydrated collection. Please post additional photos including a sliced specimen.

Cannot be Lycoperdon, as this has a small but noticeable stipe. So one of the sequestrate fungi probable. Can’t give a better suggestion yet, until I see the interior of the specimen. A VERY interesting collection!
