Scleroderma texense would be it. Shouldn’t be in your area though.

From Kuo’s Scleroderma key: “Surface conspicuously scaly with flat or nearly pyramid-shaped scales up to 2 mm high or more; mushroom sometimes larger than above (1-7 cm across); KOH yellowish to reddish; found in the southeastern United States and the mountains of Mexico; spores A, 8-12 µ.”

Immature.

Fungus appears to have small scales on cap, and thin peridium. But fungus is pure white only in extreme immaturity. It should start to mature from the center outward, defining the peridium within 3-4 days.
