Too small

The peridium was too thin for Scleroderma geaster and these do not open up. They fruit a couple of times a year under the same Pine tree, in the same exact location near a trail I walk regularly. Overall size is smaller than Scleroderma geaster.

How thick was the peridium?

Because the erumpent habit reminds me of Scleroderma geaster which has a very thick peridium. It is quite common in the southeast but I do not know if it is found in your area.
