Unlikely to be S. hypogaeum, then.

But it could still be. Rarely S. hypogaeum has been found above ground. Of course, S. hypogaeum is almost always mycorrhizal with conifers, too.

These were both above ground Daniel. Thank you! Jon

this looks like Scleroderma cepa, with white to yellow veination in the gleba.

However, the peridium is extremely thick and rind-like. If found underground (hypogeous) it looks more like Scleroderma hypogaeum, based just on the peridium.
