First photo is an excellent shot of the peridium showing at least 3 layers.

The amount of debris on the top of the sporocarp suggests S. hypogaeum to me, which usually fruits underground but can become erumpent with maturity. It also have a very thick peridium, but I don’t know how many layers are in the peridium off-hand.

Most Sclerodermas that I know of are mycorrhizal. It therefore sometimes helps to know of any nearby trees or shrubs which could be possible host plants.
