Thanks for the reply! It was in the soil, I just laid the specimens on the wood to photograph them. Our professor/mycologist stated they were from the genus Lycoperdon. We have not looked at the spores yet but I will definitely keep what you said in mind and reseach both! Thanks. :)

Have you checked Morganella pyriformis?

This looks like it has entangled rhizomorphs, and is growing on wood. It is heavily ornamented, so I can see how you would lean towards L. perlatum. It may be M. pyriformis, which does show up with external ornamented spines now and again.
Did you check the spores? What do they look like? Smooth, or ornamented?
Nice find!
