has a thin peridium (>2mm thick), pseudostipe at the base; peridium that goes through successively white, cream, yellow, rddish, light purple.

At this relatively early stage, the peridium looks dark brown with no noticeable pyrimidal warts, or large scales.

Early Scleroderma citrinum at this stage should be bright yellow-light brown. Don’t think it is S. citrinum.

I doubt you would be able to get mature spores from this collection. Maybe in a week or 2 weeks make another observation?
