Rhizopogon not likely. No rhizomorphs (thread-like structures) on peridium exterior, which is what Rhizopogons are named for. Cracking as maturing into areolate pattern, exposing yellow gleba. Mature spore-bearing gleba of Rhizopogons is not powdery. Spores in Rhizopogons remain encased with locules, or simply become soggy when wet, and disperse into the soil.

Scleroderma possible.

Need more detail, though. Interior seems to be loculate (chambered) but need to see sporocarp sectioned through the center of the based. Also need photo of base. Need to know if there is sterile base, stipe-like structure, basal pad, or rooting structure. Did carefully, as the bottom may be broken off easily.

This one actually could be a Rhizopogon.
