based on the white extension of the peridium (shell) into the gleba (spore-bearing center) still. In my experience, Scleroderma matures from the inside outward. The last portion to mature is near the peridium. I feel this is a good representation of that maturation stage. There is slight pinkish staining of the peridium on the right and far left, where the peridium is thin. While you’d have to do microscopy to be certain, good odds for S. cepa.
