I’m not sure what Richard has found here, but I’ve recently found a Morganella, not in Kuo’s key: http://mushroomobserver.org/135988?q=1JQTU
So there are other species within Morganella

Not Morganella pyriforme

which is the only species in Kuo’s key. M. pyriforme grows on wood, and this clearly grows in sandy soil.

So…must be a form of Lycoperdon, very young yet.

the odor is earthy…very mild.
the cap cracks when split, it does not “pull” apart.
