Lycoperdon molle?

If above, gleba should show rays extending outward from a stem-like extension continuing into the gleba. Schalkwijk-Barendsen notes it she collected it July 19, 1983 at Chambers Creek, Alberta, Canada. Without seeing bisected specimen, this must remain an educated guess. Peridium is described as “… a beautiful regular pattern of short gray-brown spines on a lighter background.” This specimen is very young (the white gleba) so the spines probably have not developed yet.
