They were found a few inches apart and they were the only “puffs” I found the entire trek. I do still have them and will surely post an internal shot shortly. Thanks for your input! Gino

Were these found in close proximity to each other?

Could you post a photo of a sectioned sporocarp?

I think you may have a mixed collection here. The upper photo appears to be Scleroderma citrinum. It should have warts which rise up to 2mm from the surface.

The bottom photo looks to have much larger, more defined warts. It might easily be Calbovista subsculpta. However, in Arora’s Mushrooms Demystified, C. subsculpta is listed as a mostly western species. The warts are not large or erect enough to be Calvatia sculpta. If these were found close together, and without a photo of the interior to compare them, I’d give Scleroderma citrinum the upper hand.
